    July 24, 2020 - At Pergola in Rome from the list at 450 euro - wow what a wine, amazing deep black fruit nose, could smell this forewer. Very long, as extremely long aftertaste - in a good place in regards to maturity, but could gain a bit more complexity in the mouth. Reason for not giving 100p. Reminded me a bit of a Harlan 1994 I had 7 years ago. Served with the most savory beef carved out at the table. Magic.

    December 27, 2019 - Amazing. Elegant supple and complex. Silky balanced goes down a treat.

    November 3, 2019 - Fruity and pleasant. Not much nuance.

    July 7, 2019 - One of Shafer's best. Long lasting finish, smooth tannins. Packed with berries, saddle leather. Very earthy wine. Needs a solid decent to open up but shows up with panache
