Opened at 8am drank with dinner. Powerful plush and impressive, still has another decade ahead.

Man - I am celebrating - six months to close a whale of deal - but money went out today - super big smiles and the wine is rocking as well

'14 vintage. It's one of those wines that just keeps bringing more layers. It's soft and approachable now, hard to think it will be better in a decade even though I know it will. Mourvedre goodness, but syrah complexity. Impossible not to love this.

09' I recommend you decanting this for 2 to 3 hours. Wow... I'm in love with this! I must get another bottle!

Rich, dark fruit, velvety texture and structured. Hedonistic. Gave it a solid decant and it’s drinking quite well.
