    July 9, 2020 - Very impressive. My last bottle. Lovely fruit, caramel, complex, long finish. This is a wondefull wine.

    June 20, 2020 - At first a little reductive, but this blew off. Dark fruits and a sense of wood on the nose. Obvious more than nuanced. It is dark fruited and brooding on the palate as well, broad and sappy, but lacking clarity and lift that it needed to really be special. Some torrefaction notes and the wood are a distraction on the palate form what seemed like decent fruit underneath. It has palate impact, but lacks grace and nuance. It's good, in a palate impact more than harmony sense, but I don't drink pinot for palate impact. I tend to get that feel in a lot of 09s, more so from this wine. This needed perfume and lift not just size. Foursquare.

    July 5, 2018 - Maison Ilan @ Medlar: Dense ruby. Lovely nose. Good fruit, quite meaty with a touch of caramel. Darker, slightly 11 savoury on the palate. **(*1/2) Turns out to score the same as when first tasted in 2011.

    March 29, 2018 - Cherry, sous bois, a little bit of tar; medium bodied, good length, some structure but a little undefined, good fruit and substance and generally pleasing
