    September 27, 2019 - Very good with rack of lamb. Quite fruity, surprisingly so for an 18 year old wine. Dry, plenty of body and some tannin.
    With Red Leicester a gravel and granite or pencil lead character comes out, which I notice also in previous notes. Such a classic claret.
    This is at its peak now I think.

    September 18, 2019 - Coravin tasting. Perfect storage (Octavian I think) although the bottle and label have lots of cellar dust and a touch of mildew. Cork seems good when vintage coravin used (easy but some resistence).
    Lots of fruit on the palate, good intensity, no obvious maturity.
    On the palate it is very creamy and Bordeaux-like. Quite different to the supertuscan had before. This is more classic Bordeaux, less rich, bone dry. A touch of oak coming through and some earth and tertiary characters. Probably more complex but and definitely drier. Maybe slightly short finish. The supertuscan is the clear crowd pleaser but I would go for either, however the Tuscany was far, far better value.

    November 30, 2018 - Very much in a prime drinking window, beautiful cedar nose, developed fruits, perfect now and over next 5 to 7 years.
