Community Tasting Notes (8) Avg Score: 89.8 points

  • Dark blackish red, paling edge. Large bq w blackberries, stone dust, fennel, liquorice, dark fruits. Full bodied, fine, high acidity, prominent tannins that are beginning to soften, dark cherries in the middle. Long aftertaste, fruity, some alcohol. Flavours have begun to integrate. Needs a few more years (Parker judgement way off). Very good effort and very good QPR.

  • This wine still has a lovely deep red color in the glass. This time, we drank it at a dinner without decanting. Immediately, the wine was open for business, but improved as the level in the bottom went down. It still has plenty of dark fruits, smoothed out tannins and light acidity to balance out the 15% alcohol. In all, this has been a most enjoyable wine and a fascinating journey to see it develop. It's been at it's peak for a while, but it shows no signs of going past its best. Sadly, this was my last bottle. If I saw this wine from the same vintage I would be very tempted to buy it again, it's such wonderful quality for the money.

  • This wine has morphed since I last rated it into a beautiful swan. The inkiness seems to have toned down into what is still a deep red. We opened and poured from the bottle, and the wine was open for drinking immediately. There are still plenty of dark fruits, but the tannins have mellowed nicely to create what is a very well rounded wine with everything in perfect balance. The finish is deliciously sweet (but not in a sugary sense). Previously, I was all for drinking this wine in its youth, but I can see that waiting a year or so has brought forth an excellent wine. There are three bottles remaining from the case, and I'm tempted to wait another year to see if there is another phase or whether this is the peak. Either way, excellent wine and fantastic QPR.

  • The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like cherry, mineral, cedar and black pepper. It tastes like strawberry and cherry. The body is full. The wine has bright texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.
