    May 6, 2017 - Plenty of blackcurrant and eucalyptus. Still feels youthful and should keep for many more years.

    February 15, 2013 - Dark red/black, tending to lighter red at the rim - menthol and cassis on the nose. Moderate body, not overdone but by the same token not of any great depth or complexity either. Thoroughly decent, but unexceptional.

    January 19, 2013 - Pretty good. Dark in colour. Some alcohol in the nose. Dark berries in taste.

    November 12, 2012 - Weekly tasting group #051; Bordeaux blends (By me @ BD): You can smell the eucalyptus from a distance. Cassis in the nose as well. Same on the palate. Very ripe black fruit juice, a lot of sweetness, ok acidity and bitterness, a lot of sweetness again. There is some freshness as well, but overall the very ripe and very sweet impressions are not very interesting.
