    June 24, 2020 - BYO with friends - Bordeaux-inspired (Mangiamo, Village Hotel Albert Court): Deep garnet, with significantly fading edges. Aromas of moss, earth, twigs, and some rather underripe red cherry. Still lots of tannins and heat, with red cherry, fern, cloves, twigs, moss, and graphite. Nice!

    September 1, 2015 - This has its strengths and its weaknesses, neither of which are insubstantial! On the plus side, the nose is redolent of smokey Graves plum, pencil, flowers. The minus column is comprised of unsophisticated tannins, an angular palate, and a short finish.

  • Westerner Does not like this wine: 85 points

    September 21, 2014 - Wine was past its drinking date and this affected the taste. No real complexity and it tasted pretty thin. Rather short finish.

    January 3, 2014 - Dark red colour with some brick-red hue.
    The nose shows maturity with peppery herbs and some wet soil and leather.
    The palate is medium with maturity and softening tannines. Nice fruit and long finish of cherries.

    April 17, 2013 - Vanilla, stable, bitumen, truffles, leather, very complex and no as fruity as I had hoped very mature - passed its best before date? No sure, lot more attractive than the same wine from 2009 though.
