    March 13, 2017 - Consumed over two nights. The first night I decanted half of the botte (1 hour). Did not change much since my last bottle a year ago. The second night it was a bit softer and more in balance. 91+ pts at the moment.

    October 10, 2016 - {cork} Aging, soft leafy aromas. Gentle red fruit. Surprisingly soft palate, just medium-bodied, with low powdery tannins and medium acid. It seems a little hollow on the palate to me; I’m searching for flavour but it’s not really living up to the nose. Not faulty, just rather subdued. Short/medium finish. Ready to drink on this tasting.

    June 16, 2016 - My wife opened yesterday. I am drinking after a night in the fridge from about half a bottle. So much more interesting than a few weeks ago. Open. Tannin resolved. Alcohol less prominent than I remember. Sweet red and black fruit with violet, vanilla and tobacco nose. Fleshy. More dark blackcurrant and coffee from oak on the palate. More savoury than the nose. Modern but lovely.

    April 8, 2016 - Eðalklúbbur, vínsmakk #3 vor 2016 (Marbakkabraut 12): Mjög svipaður litur og á 2011. Frekar lokað í nefi. Samt má finna vanillu og dökka ávexti. Í bragðinu er enn sæta. Dökkir ávextir, plómur einnig vanilla. Frekar þunnt bragð. Einnig remmutónar sem skemmdu svolítið fyrir. Það var samt ekki talið að vínið væri skemmt. Við smökkuðum þetta vín í vínklúbbi fyrir um tveimur árum og þá stóð það sig mun betur en þessi frammistaða. Það vöknuðu upp spurningar hvort að vínið væri statt í dal. Að minnsta kosti á það að eiga fullt eftir.
