    January 28, 2023 - Simply amazing!

  • Darwine Likes this wine: 98 points

    January 16, 2022 - Instant nose of black raspberry opening up with notes of leather and spice. After opened for 30 minutes the wine was luscious and decadent. Full bodied deep dark fruit with a great mouth feel of dark fruit. Finish showed the decadent tannins, soft long and impressive. A real delight to drink. If my patience was there I am not sure it would have been any better.
