    July 16, 2016 - Aromas of orange peel and red berries, with floral notes and flavors. Paired beautifully with bison burritos. Nice wine.

    July 10, 2016 - Throws a refreshing fragrance of fresh crannberry. Light to medium bodied on the palate, with a pleasant attack, showing more cranberry, and dark plum fruit. Flattens out on the mid palate and toward the back, though some acidic structure peaks out, there is not much for tannin. Went pretty well with sushi/ soy sauce, but it wasn't until coming back to the wine an hour later that I was enjoying it. The fruit put on some weight and sweetness, and it became a nice, refreshing drink with medium complexity.

    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.
