    December 24, 2014 - Very much as previous note but starting to fade. Still (just) in the excellent class but should be drunk up over the next year. My last.

    March 2, 2014 - Benefited from 2.5 hour decant and being served at good room temperature.
    Aroma of baked plum and berry fruits. Blackcurrant and red fruits on the palate, dense with a dash of tar and vegetal and capsicum traces giving both a mature feel and grip to this splendid and fairly complex wine. Good length.
    Fully mature with another year or two ahead of it at this level.

    February 5, 2011 - Tar and earth on the nose, and suprisingly bright strawberry, blackberry, tart cherry taste. Good length and depth. Better than expected, this is ready now and need minimal decant.
