    November 6, 2020 - A blend of fruit and funk, together with good acidity, puts this right in our wheelhouse. A fairly small amount overnight in a decanter didn't change much, so drink or hold.

    July 2, 2014 - special. nicely aged. showing equal parts of earth, herbs, tobacco, and subtle bright berry fruit. I enjoyed very much.

    December 8, 2013 - Nice enough, soft and juicy - deep purple red with nose of tobacco, spice and dark plum - palate very soft, plush, still some tannic structure, but low acidity, so I'd drink these now - juicy Cab Franc flavours, fruit and tobacco, no greeness - nice but slightly flabby.
