    January 22, 2019 - This developed nicely over the last 7 years, and is finally turning into something more authentic and enjoyable. But there's still no rush to open, as the remaining fruit and structure were totally sufficient to support further development. Revisit in 5 years.

    August 5, 2018 - Still going great. Very well balanced and full bodied. I have enjoyed this wine very much over the years. One bottle left after 12. I'll drink this in a couple of years.

    February 18, 2018 - The wine is at the beautiful spot of mellowed fruit and tertiary aromas, yet maintaining great freshness and youthful energy. Thin watery rim, dark ruby colour, clean. On the nose dark and fruity tones of chocolate, coffee, black tea, cherry, dried tomato, parsley. The palate is clean, full, ripe, soft, with solid tannins and lifted acidity, very long. 50 CS, 30 M, 20 PV.

    December 23, 2017 - I thought the wine couldn't get any better but it has. For a QPR wine this has plenty of life left in it. It's very well balanced and the finish is much longer than the previous bottles I had.

    September 2, 2017 - very good QPR, well balanced with a long aftertaste
