    October 25, 2021 - A private dinner (Restaurant d'Oude Schuur, Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium): Cedary and mature Cabernet, bright fruit, cranberries and red currants, fresh and slender, elegant and linear, very good length.

    October 2, 2021 - Wanted this one to change my life. Didn’t quite do that, but it was still a good time.

    September 23, 2021 - A dark colour, and a dark, brooding wine with intense blackcurrant/ blackberry fruit and a touch of smoke. Very fine now, but will keep well for many years.

    September 15, 2021 - Flash note. Romantic wine. Sensual. Seductive. Bright red and blue fruit. Sous bois and earthy nose. Coffee and tar. Refined tannins but still BIG. Plenty of horsepower to go another 20/30 years. Lengthy finish. Highly recommended.

    September 11, 2021 - Advanced cherry red color with hint of reddish brown towards the rim. Mediterranean stain (olive, rosemary and sage), outline of spice, tobacco and leather, robust core of black currant and cherry, tannins still very free-range. Very full in the mouth. Intense and long finish. At least another 10 years without any problems.
