    August 7, 2020 - Had this in my cellar a while. Screwcap, decanted one hour. Quite aromatic, a lot of varietal spice and regional coolness to the fruit. White pepper, blueberry, raspberry, cloves, anise, liquorice. Lovely to just stick my nose in the glass for a while. Palate has some biscuity / oaky flavours but overall feels resolved and easy to drink. Not super complex or layered but has some interest. Feels like the screwcap and careful cellaring has frozen this in time though, not much in the way of secondary characters yet.

    December 8, 2018 - Rather dull, muted red fruits with little development. Could be an off bottle so I'll reserve judgement.

    February 17, 2018 - Drinking nicely. No hurry but not sure will improve much either. Minimal hints of viognier, some nice charred characteristics coming through with air.

    April 10, 2015 - Mini Verticals - Tasted Blind: Raspberry, spice, violet and some blackberry. Mild palate, doesn't overdo the fruit power but still has some good weight. Seems well balanced and while it is ticking along nicely, a couple more years will be of benefit.

    May 30, 2013 - Still showing rather young. Should perhaps have had a splash in the decanter. Intense, dark, mulberry fruit, lovely tannins, decent length. Just needs a little more time to come together as acid stood out a touch. Well integrated oak. Good wine.
