    June 10, 2016 - This bottle was shedding some of its aggressive medicinal elements. Like Cinsault, a unique flavor profile that is highly distinctive. Looking forward to seeing how this one rounds out with more time on its side.

    May 24, 2016 - Popped and poured at a Italian wine night. In the past, I have been less than impressed with this wine. But tonight, I really enjoyed it. It was light and a good acidity. Its been called a baby barolo by some, but it actually reminded me of some light red french wines.

    March 25, 2016 - Som vanligt ett intressent vin. Mognaden är ni fin och domineras av en fräsch frukt som tonar ut i vanilj. Mycket bra nu men håller sannolikt flera år ytterligare.

    March 18, 2016 - Light, floral, herbal, light tannins, fruit. very nice. Had with backed short rib, but would shine with the right food.

    March 8, 2016 - I kid you not, this stuff is delicious and much of that impression comes from the sheer unusual-ness of this varietal wine. Lithe, perfumed, lightly tannic but not enough to upset a dish of Asian style steamed fish, this is a delightful drink. An elixir of roses, violets and juicy red fruit. Have no idea if this can take some cellar age, but at our house it's likely to be consumed in the very near term.
