    December 8, 2018 - A giving nose of pure blackcurrant, mint. Marinating meat. Racy. Lovely blackcurrant attack with good depth. A dry finish from the residual tannin. Interesting. Last of a six pack that I have been seeing how it aged. I’d lost all hope that it would age well - as I was told - But this was the best, easily. Softened, integrated and, especially, balanced.

    April 4, 2018 - Deep ruby in colour. A powerful and classic cabernet nose of blackfruits, a hint of mint, cedar and basil - lovely. There is more of the same on the medium-full bodied palate, but the very healthy tannins are the main attribute here. They are still quite aggressive, and I am a fan of tannins. So there's a weird juxtaposition between the nice nose and fruit and then the huge wall of tannins at the end. Hold off several years if you can - hopefully the tannins will subside over time without losing the fruit too quickly. I still enjoyed the wine, though (B+). The second day, the tannins did subside somewhat.

    December 3, 2017 - Initially mineral with a alcoholic, slightly menthol and leafy palette. Some nice, red, fruit came through with the bit left after I decided it was for the stew! Still, the nose was the best of it.

    October 5, 2017 - Really liked this. Smells of blackberry, violets, iron, blood and earthen. Got minty, bay leaf undertones. Old leather and cigar box. A lot going on. Fruit had settled well. Enjoyable wine and great value for money

    October 3, 2017 - Sweet, well aged with a bit of strange duck shit funkiness that was on both nose and the palate. Good tannin, sweet dark fruited perhaps closest to mulberry. A tad sickly but an OK drink all up. 89.
