    July 30, 2015 - Superbly delicious at early maturity.
    Great tannic grip and posture. Dramatic wine.
    Will live long and prosper.

    April 26, 2015 - Medium garnet with brich hues. On the nose it is complex and elegant with red cherry, leather, barnyard scents, damp earth and espresso roast alongside some scents of undergrowth indicating evolution. Medium-bodied with firm but not intrisively so tannins, med-high acidity and evolved but still quite vibrant fruit. Long aftertaste. Drinks nicely but will probably improve over the next 5 years.

    November 24, 2014 - Toasting for Hugo after the NYC marathon earlier this month (at my home): immediately after uncorking:
    pleasant aroma of ripe cherries & spices, still tight on the palate

    8 hours later:
    excellent harmony, quality wine, very enjoyable

    24 hours later, last glass in the bottle:
    colour: transparent dark red-brown
    nose: dark ripe cherries, tobacco leaves, leadpencil, hints of damp soil & leather.
    Palate: full bodied, firm & solid tannins, high acidity level, excellent harmony, ripe dark berries fruits, cedar flavours, subtle spiciness, long finish, seems at its peak. Great value for money.
