14’ Bevan Wildfoote -Vixen. WNH- virtual tasting. Decanted for two hours. Consumed over the next three. Took more then a few hours for it to come around. I always hate it when the last glass taste better than the first. Beautiful wine. Sit on them for another couple of years. IMO

Post Master's Bordeaux Class, we ran into Russell Bevan and Brian Kearney of Addax. Russell opened up this beauty for us to try.

Super dark and deep purplish ruby red. Layered nose of sweet spices, black fruits and tons of oaky notes. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. As always, heavily extracted. Super rich and loaded with blackberries, black cherries, cinnamon and solid gravel backbone. Silky and voluptuous mouthfeel. Delicious all over with a lingering finish. Surprisingly well integrated and approachable for being so young. Drink till 2030.

Fruit bomb. A bit unidimensional. Blackberry and cassis. I got the end of this bottle after it had been open for a few hours. But IMO it should have been rocking. At 200+ / bottle, horrible QPR IMO. 14 Pott Kaliholmanok that was firing on all cylinders crushed this one quite easily.

Totally awesome. Big nose, layered, wildflowers, red, blue, and black fruits. Inky charry finish that hangs out for 60 seconds. Ready to drink with a short decant.
