    November 17, 2014 - Slow ox in glass and in bottle for 2 hrs. A little disappointing. I like some herbal/green pepper in my Bordeaux blends but this was a little much for me. Bottle had not been properly stored and was only $20 from a wine rep friend. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    November 1, 2014 - Dark fruit, red berries, spices and cedar on the nose. Very nicely evolved. Classic bdx composition. Beautiful mouthfeel, red berries, coffee beans, good body and fine acidity. Licorice. Smooth tannins. Lovely.

    August 8, 2014 - A nose of dark fruits and spices, dark garnet in color. A medium to full bodied Bordeaux blend, with blackberry, currants, earth, licorice and spices on finish, was good just missing that something to be great. www.winelx.com

    July 5, 2014 - Fet, men domineres for sterkt av syrlig skinn! Ikke gøy.

    June 10, 2014 - Première expérience avec ce vin, et il me semble prêt à boire. Les tanins sont soyeux, et l'ensemble est harmonieux et digeste.
