    July 19, 2019 - Some cedar, graphite and muted blackberry fruit, a hint of tertiary flavours but less developed than expected for 21 years.

    June 17, 2018 - This is a pleasant wine, but there is nothing remarkable about it. A lot of sour cherry on the palate with tame tannins and just a touch too much acidity for my liking. Not a lot of secondary flavors or complexity here either.

    April 2, 2018 - It needs drinking, but this is still a very good wine. Slightly brown edges to the colour, with a nose edging towards forest fruits and leaves, but a fulsome, appealing, jammy fruit blend that evokes wild strawberry.

    February 20, 2018 - Fully mature, the wine is round open and ready for prime time drinking, thanks to its easily accessible, licorice, black cherry, chocolate, earthy character and lushly textured finish. There is no reason to hold this for further evolution.
