Medium length finish. Nice second wine, still drinking well, but I can't see it improving and I'd suggest drinking in the next two years.

    October 12, 2011 - A most appreciated wedding present from Yasmin Boland enjoyed with our newest old friend, Morgan Stetler between his meetings with Zynga and Branson's Virgin Galactica

    A well-made, unflashy St Julien.

    Appearance: medium-plus garnet
    Nose: Clean. showing iodine, floral notes, black fruit and timber
    Palate: med-minus fruit and medium-light bodied. Furry tannin. Delicious savoury flavour. quite long and satisfying.

    May 1, 2007 - Had a toasty/smoky quality. On the palate it was quite smooth though there was lots more of that smoky element, matched with heaps of spice. Though there was decent fruit lurking there somewhere. The tannins were nicely matured which offered a pleasant mouthfeel. It was a chunkier wine than I was expecting though it was savoury and a good match for food. I liked it but couldn’t claim to love it. (may ’07)
