    April 7, 2017 - Not quite as smooth as I expected it to be. Dark old fruits, grass, dust, dirt and smokiness. Some barnyard funk on the nose. Medium body with a short finish. Tannic. To quote VIVT (below), "not dead yet but at its end."

    June 15, 2014 - cheers - very enjoyable, although 2 strikes to begin with....first, a poor vintage (78-82); second, wine probably peaked 10 years ago. I don't see any records of this since 2012.....and I have another bottle (thanks dad). At this point, I decanted the wine only for sediment, of which there wasn't very much. Let it breathe for 15 minutes, then drink up. Nice start, weak finish. Happy Father's Day.

    March 22, 2012 - Quite a strong banyard character on the nose, with soy sauce, woody incense, mushroom & dried herbs follow at the back. Some relatively sweet black currants on the palate too, with some addition of alcohol's heat. Medium body, has a tight, gripping acidity and I thought this wine is abit unbalance as the acidity and alcohol overpowered the fruits & flavours - with a rather short finish.
