    January 3, 2020 - Dinner with new friends (Wanaka Wedge House, Queensberry, Central Otago, New Zealand): This bottle totally exceeded expectations. Ready for prime time, this is open, intense, refined, and completely representative of Hermitage. Very classy, with typical; smoke, hung game, and deep raspberry fruit. Bottle in this condition will easily last (and possibly improve) for another decade. 92+?

    May 17, 2019 - En révisant mes notes, je constate que le vin est resté relativement stable au cours des deux dernières années. De belles saveurs de fruits noirs en bouche et au nez. La grande différence était la finale de poivre au nez. Bonne bouteille de garde à bon prix

    January 14, 2017 - Un vin qui s'est très bien exprimé après un passage à carafe. La complexite est intéressante avec une belle évolution. Un peu ferme au début mais des goûts de réglisses, fruits noirs et prunes sont progressivement apparu en bouche et au nez. Encore une pointe de tanins mais je n'attendrais pas ce vin plus longtemps. Belle expérience.

    February 7, 2014 - Dense dark core with reddish plum rim; some soy, caraway, graham cracker, slight glycerin; palate better, richer, solid tannins, not dry but lacks freshness; not great; seemed to be advancing quickly, too.
