This is their Bordeaux style red. The nose shows; dark currants, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, blueberries, strawberries & cherries. Dark chocolate, vanilla, dark spice, clove, some nutmeg, dark fruit cola, black licorice, a whiff of cherry cough syrup with dark, red and blue fresh & withering florals.
The body is near full with dark, meat, tarry and sticky tannins. The structure, tension, length and balance allow it to drink early but needs to be held 6-8 years plus. Dark currants, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, black plum, blueberries, strawberries & cherries. Dark chocolate, vanilla, dark spice, clove, some nutmeg, dark fruit cola, black licorice, a whiff of cherry cough syrup, deep, dark, heat penetrating dark spice, tobacco with ash, big leather with dark, red and blue fresh & withering florals. The acidy is good. The finish is nice, balanced but needs time to reveal its best self. 91 now with the potential for a little higher score in six to eight years.
We also had their 2017 Divas Chenin Blanc. It was very enjoyable but, didn’t have time to take notes as we had to get to Raats.

Friday night and watching Dirty Harry Magnum force!￼. "You've got to ask yourself a question: 'do I feel lucky? ... well yes actually! Complete stumble... into man’s territory. Relax my female and not so female friends. Just loving the 70s jive......
Bugger me Australia pulled out all the stops tonight. They hate France and they feel inferior to to the West Coast USA but in this everyday winner they’re beating them all. Less that £20 ($30) and no mistake, this is a great Friday night in front t of the TV (by yourself) bottle. This is not pretending to be nice, not socially aware. This is strong, brave and naughty, just like our Harry! Got a gun, use it! I’m aware a year in the wilderness since my last post but this is worth writing about. Quickly regarding Delectable, I photo my wines and I watch you girls and boys regarding the food bad and the ugly. Writing reduces the drinking but sometimes it’s good to contribute. — 10 months ago
I had the 2018 by itself while watching some trashy TV (90 day Fiance, the other way, if you must know.) I wasn't expecting much from this #nakedwine bottle, but it was delightful. I'd describe it as initially sweet and smooth, then gets naughty with some tannins for some mouth feel and a peppery finish. It had a range of emotions, just like the 2020 election. — 7 months ago
Really interesting now but would love to see how it develops in a few years. A little naughty off the hop! Would casually swear a bit and tell you openly about its sex life because it hasn’t quite solidified its identity yet but wants to seem confident. Nice dark red fruit tones and eucalyptus notes. Some sweaty leather thing that feels distinctly Italian.. Cab Franc meets Syrah and they work on a group project and everyone surprisingly gets along just fine, — 2 years ago
