    April 20, 2019 - Decanted and served. Just entering its drinking window for our liking of Bordeaux ,the nose is superb. Classic and classy, elegant, dark fruited, light herby, mint, soft cedar and spice. The palate would have benefitted from a bit more decanting but still it's another great example of the great and unsung vintage 2001 is. Excellent wine and great value. 93-94 and pls give it some decanting prior to drinking.

    February 2, 2019 - Annual Coravin blitz - day three (My place, Kent Street): From Coravin. Leather, cigar box, a little liquorice, plums, black berries and spice, cedar with a little cassis in the background. More fleshy than juicy but doesn’t lack acidity. Flavourwise it mimics the nose, tannins are floury and persistent carrying a little fruit. nice.

    December 1, 2018 - Excellent bottle. Decanted for about 2 hours and it just kept getting better and better throughout that time. Elegant long finish. Plenty of power and flavor.

    October 13, 2017 - Elegant, very balanced, hint of oak, fresh, very long. Excellent wine!

    September 18, 2017 - Fully ready for prime time the wine is soft, round and on the floral, earthy, black cherry side of the style range. Not at all over oaked, as you find in numerous, subsequent vintages, the wine is medium/full bodied, delivering freshness and ripe, earthy, red fruits in the finish.
