    February 16, 2020 - PnD let air for 1hr.

    Clear medium ruby. No sign of garnet/bricking despite reviews indicating this was past the drinking window.

    Clean. Medium intensity with aromas of cedar cassis blackberry herbs and crushed stones.

    Dry. Medium alcohol. Medium acidity. Medium(+) tannins. Medium body. Medium intensity with flavours of cassis plum mushroom leatherand herbs.

    Medium(+) with notes of blackberry torrefaction and tobacco. Very good. Drink now not suitable for further ageing. This has held up beyond expectation. In a real sweet spot. Drink up.

    December 9, 2018 - Initially wonderful with great balance and leather. Quickly turned acidic so drink this quickly with no decanting time or you will miss the beauty.

    December 4, 2016 - I like it. Nice boysenberry on the nose A little tannin and a little port-like fruit on the back. But just very nice with grilled lamb.
