Not a mindblowing experience but a very respectable bottle.....with one of the deepest punts in history... Maybe that is why some expect more?

Well made and niely structured with a good level of acidity. not particularly long but good with our meal of oysters and Cherrystones.

Have a few more of these to go through and thought I would put one in the fridge last night for a curry fish meal. consistent notes with above but man this thing has a MASSIVE punt.... If you ever see this on a shelf....pick it up. I could fit my wholet thumb in there....hmmm...wonder what else fits....... [img]/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

I think the Alysian Floodgate Vineyard Pinot Noir bottle had a deep punt also (and was heavy to lift.)

I just found out that I could fit a whole Le Tur chees in the punt!
