    July 22, 2018 - Heavy body and backbone. Rich. High acidity in the finish as I always expect with 1.5.

    Can sit down for many more years.

    July 19, 2018 - Little bit jammy and alcoholic the first day (91p). Better second day. More towards a bordeaux (left bank). Still young, can stay another 5 years in the cellar. The wine looks inky colored. The legs are slow. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, chocolate, red currant and meaty. It tastes like blackberry, black currant (cassis) and forest floor. The body is medium/full. The wine has satin-like texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

    May 11, 2018 - Beautiful dried stone fruits flavour. Dates and prunes dominate. Tannins still elegant, but slightly lacking in acidity suggesting this is not for the long haul. Delicious now, but don’t expect to age for any considerable amount of time.

    April 25, 2018 - Medium to deep ruby red with garnet edges.Notes of dark berries, damp forest floor, slight earthiness, and mushrooms. Dark stewed berries on the palate with moderate tannins (6.5/10). Drinking perfectly right now with dark spices, stewed berries, and damp earth. Medium plus finish. Drink now.

    April 25, 2018 - Rich straight out of the bottle not too fruity N6

    Better than the 2006 I had last week. Less heat in the finish than the 06 but what I call classic 1.5 - It always has some heat which is one of its key detractors from getting the score up to the mid 90s.

    Nice strong body still B7 with a moderately long finish F7. Flavor wise this has more cab franc and verdot than it actually has - only 1% verdot and 0% franc.
