    February 29, 2020 - Bright blackcurrent juice with dried red chilli, hints of vanilla pods and earthy cumin. Only on the palate the smoked bell pepper emerged from the rich and fat structure. Very rounded and dense on the full-bodied palate. For my taste, it is lacking some acidity. Finish is one dimensional but deep.

    July 28, 2019 - Deep ruby in the glass. Showing a combo of fresh and bottle aged notes on the nose - blackberry, plum, blackcurrant, tobacco, vanilla and cigar box. Hints of caramelized coffee. Dense, but not sweet. Complex, structured and balanced. A beautiful effort, drinking like a fine scotch. Goes awesomely well with bbq.

    July 23, 2018 - Great Cabernet just starting to hit its stride. Blackberry, blackcurrant, some red berry notes, coupled with cedar oak and leather. Fine tannins across the palate. Finish still fruity. Under screwcap so will probably last an age.

    May 12, 2018 - Blackcurrants, delicious, very soft with a long finish.

    Drank with lamb ragu, but dish was a bit oily and spicy, so somewhat smothered the wine. It went much better with the lime and corriander chicken skewers

    March 3, 2018 - Nice but not the wow factor I was expecting... Nice nose, quite complex with leather, brambles and a touch of earthy mint. Fruit driven but a little sweet and a fairly short finish...
