So young but just really tasty. Powerful tannins, savory and fresh incredibly long. Would love to revisit in a decade.

Starting to hit it’s stride, but retaining a nice richness on the palate / dried red fruit, tobacco

Stupid young, but accessible with a long decant. Not likely the vintage to make old bones, but the consolation is that the ripe red and black cherry fruit and (relatively) soft structure make this thoroughly enjoyable in the short term.

Shouldn’t be passed its prime, but showing astringency and deep plum, raisin.........disappointed.

Amazing wine. Cigar box, tobacco, dark fruit, earth, velvety texture. Everything you'd want.
