    March 2, 2015 - Medium light body, long fine legs. Decanted for about 45mins. The nose is quite stylish with some nice development but plenty of fruit still. Just a hint of fine tannin, slightly creamy in texture and taste, just about enough acidity, I would say drink now but could quite well hold for longer

    December 23, 2012 - Elegant and very complex. Medium bodied, with red fruit, mushroom, earth, and spice notes. Bright acidity and a long finish. This just ot better and more interesting as it opened up. After an hour or so, it could have easily passed for a good Burgundy.

    December 21, 2010 - Central Otago Wine Trip December 2010; 12/20/2010-12/23/2010 (Central Otago, New Zealand): Made from only the 3 Dijon clones grown at amisfield. This has a lovely classic burgundy nose, getting a bit of bottle age now, full and concentrated, lovely mouthfeel, the palate is relatively linear, but it was so well defined that it didn't matter, ready now, but will keep for at least another 5 years, excellent.
