First taste of the 2016. Delicious. Perfect with Halloween chocolate.

Big bold and high in tannins . Probably needs to be decanted for a long time before drinking which may impact the drinkability after 45 minutes of decanting

Really nice with a 2-hour decant. I find their blends a lot more approachable in their youth than their single vineyard wines. Raspberry, currant, cocoa, cedar. Balanced fruit, tannin and acidity.

‘16 and ‘15 Bard side-by-side. The ‘15 is very big and powerful, while the ‘16 is a bit more refined. Both are amazing. I would happily drink either one any day of the week!
