    July 8, 2017 - w8 - 2006 colonial estate grenache - similar to the previous. coffee, raisins, amaronesque got a bit of pong, just a bit, falling over

    November 8, 2012 - Holding up okay. Alcohol and acid sticking out a bit, freshly opened however so may settle down with a bit of air. Not as vibrant as other bottles I have had.

    July 15, 2012 - A lovely brick-red colour, aged black fruit and an almost port-like aroma, the flavours are relaxed with very soft tannins. It's clearly reaching the end, drink now and enjoy.

    June 29, 2012 - I suggest drinking this now if you still have bottles. It's begun to fade, and the alcohol is starting to dominate.

    November 17, 2011 - I noticed the oak much more this time around. The best sip was the last sip. Like 'Kenachers' says, still a way to go on this...I reckon the wine is in a down phase.
