    November 9, 2019 - This is a thin product. Not much fruit and little finish which is sour.

    November 9, 2019 - Tasty. Decanted from magnum. Had an excessive foam on the top that took a little while to settle down.

  • Vinomnivore Likes this wine: 93 points

    October 14, 2019 - Drank well upon opening (to my surprise). Didn't materially improve with time in the decanter. This seems to be entering a good drinking window.

    October 13, 2019 - Purchased on release and professionally stored. Aromatic and accessible, but not really my style of aromatics. Seems a bit "burnt" with smoke, fire pit and coffee notes. Will try again tomorrow.

    September 29, 2019 - Taken to Zuni last weekend, they had shite glasses but actually NBD as this bottle was wonderfully expressive and supremely well balanced. Not too stemmy, super glad I held basically all my 07 and 08 Rhys reds, I think the next 5 years are going to be fun.
