    December 15, 2019 - Nice aged Bordeaux. Smells like the leather in an old library. Stewed berries and earth.

    October 31, 2019 - As for first bottle but even more tannic grip but unfurled over an hour again - no hurry but delicious when given some air

    October 12, 2019 - Brick red in colour - firm and tannic on opening after a couple of hours in the glass it unfurled into a textbook St Julien with good dark red fruit , cedar and graphite - excellent

    October 6, 2019 - Brick red. Nose is cedar, pencil lead, stewed raspberries. Bright acidity of tangerine on the palate with warm spices and more of the same from the nose. Soft, rounded tannins. Subtle, but long finish with the raspberries and spices. Very nice! As it still has nice acidity, it could probably drink well for at least another 5 years.

    July 23, 2019 - Brick red. Nose shows leather, cherries, black currants. In mouth, still shows good fruit, but more towards dried fruits such as dates and black currants, also leather. Will probably not get any better, but still drinks very well now!
