  • Corkscrew absolutely disinterested the cork (went in fine, then pulled a cylindrical plug out of the middle of it, tried with an ah-so, but no luck. Had to filter the wine through a coffee filter which was an inauspicious start. No idea why this happened as I have used that corkscrew with plenty of other older bottles without issue, and when the cork did come out in pieces, it wasn't stained or anything - looked brand new apart from the bottom circle, which was dark red.

    It was a tasty bottle, but the cork palaver shook up the sediment and kinda ruined the experience somewhat. Had it with lamb cutlets and then over the course of the next couple of days. It was OK on day 1 and 2, but by day 3 it started to fall apart. Very much delicious acidity with tertiary character to the nose. My wife said it smelled of "a walk in the woods", so sous bois.

  • Easter Sunday with lamb. Oaky nose, smoke. Long finish. Well balanced and not over the hill. Subtle nuances lost with mint sauce, but nonetheless a good wine.

  • PnP and 90min decant. Drinking straight from the go.
    Fully mature, soft, mellow. Nose of red fruit and balsam. On the palette, the fruit gently arrives and then quickly transitions to lovely aged flavours of wood, smoke and cocoa. Powerful. Resolved tannins
    Extremely impressive Rioja at £28.

  • Really special. Still lots of fruit - plum, black cherry and sweeter bramble notes - but the age characters starting to shine through, some gentle spice (clove or nutmeg) into a smooth savoury finish with cedar and light oak notes. Gone back for a case.
