    June 2, 2016 - Opening up every year we drink this. Nice candied nose with red licorice, herbs, and spices. The palate is big, round, and vuluptous, with nice blackcurrant, black fruit, and savory notes. The finish is smoothing out, but still slightly hot. On the march towards peak in 3-5 years so still plenty of time.

    April 24, 2016 - Monastrell mix - first time to taste. Dark fruit and a bit sweet in the taste. Heavy , not too heavy. I was on a Holger Koch Pinot from Baden and my wife on the spanish one. Two kind of red wines - liked both though.

    August 9, 2015 - Opaque garnet color turning crimson at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose is perfumed and exotic, giving off ripe purple fruits, violets, coffee, bell peppers, and plum sauce. The palate is full-bodied, intense, dry but intriguingly full of ripe fruits in the background. Flavors of blackberry, blueberries, licorice, black tea, kirsch, spice, smoked oak and clove. Finishes long with attractive, gripping tannins. Drink now with a 40-minute decant or from 2017 to 2025.
