    July 24, 2015 - Ren doft, fortfarande under utveckling, medel till låg intensitet. Relativt svalfruktig doft med struktur björnbär, plommon, blåbär och en lätt bläckig ton,
    Smaken är torr med hög syra, många men finslipade tanniner, fyllig kropp och en alkohol som ligger något högt. Smaken är även den mörkfruktig. Ett medellångt och tyvärr lite anonymt avslut.
    Ett korrekt vin som kan lagras ytterligare dock utan särskild förbättring. Matvänligt, och mycket prisvärt (119 kronor vid inköp). Behöver luft/ tid i glaset för att hitta rätt.

    April 3, 2015 - Dark as hell, strong tannins, acidity working well with spicy food

    March 28, 2015 - Ren, fortfarande ungdomlig mörkfruktig doft med björnbär och kryddiga fatinslag.
    Smaken är torr med hög syra, mycket påtagliga men fint slipade tanniner. Fyllig kropp och en hög men bra integrerad alkoholl. Fruktig smak med ett halvlångt lite för aggressivt avslut.
    Bra, ytterst prisvärt vin som mycket väl klarar minst fem års lagring till utan att tappa i kvalitet

    July 24, 2014 - The wine is clear and bright with a deep ruby colour and presence of dense slow-falling legs. The nose is clean and developing, showing medium+ intensity aromas of ripe plums, dark cherries, walnuts, chocolate and hints of neutral blue flowers. The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium+ acidity. It has high coarse tannins and a high warm alcohol. It has a full body and medium+ intensity flavours of cherries, walnuts, chocolate and hints of neutral blue flowers. The finish is medium.

    It is a very good quality wine with a nice flavour concentration, a good balance between alcohol and tannins and a decent enough finish. However it could be more complex. Can drink now, but it has enough tannic and acidic structure, and enough fruit concentration, to develop a bit more of complexity in the next 5-8 years.
