Cooler climate red blend offers nice balance from an underrated wine region.

Doubt anyone's heard this before but this Nota Bene's a darn fine sip (least this '03)

Very glad to see that the Nota Bene is still alive and well 10 years on.

Going old school tonight. Pleasantly surprised that this '01 held up as nicely as it did. Brava Senka.

New release is already phenomenal with dark berry, white pepper and leather on the nose. Ripe cherry and spice will pair well with a thick cut T-bone steak grilled over charcoal. Will age well over next 10 years.

Deliciously big full bodied. Chewy and earthy tastes with several layers. Black/ red berries, plums and delicious spices filled with cloves and peppers. Very complex. Open and decant for a while to truly experience the full depth of flavours. One of my favourites. Longer finish and more complex than the 2014 Vintage.
