    January 25, 2020 - Much more open then when I had this in 2011. The bitterness is gone and the fruit is shining through as well as the balance and mouthfeel.

    December 28, 2019 - Delicious. Benefits from air. Full-bodied lush wine that is integrated and not overpowering. Big finish.

    January 11, 2017 - A very lovely wine. The nose was floral with some chocolate and berries. It was great from the first pour (no decant). On the palate, loads of black fruit, toasted almond and the tannins were well integrated.
