    September 26, 2016 - Reticent nose of brown sugar. Sweet, with a gentle nuttiness and light honey flavors. Good acid, but comes off as a bit young and monolithic.

    From a bottle that had been Coravinned.

    March 27, 2016 - Seems like I have had better bottles of this; ample width on the palate, but not quite vibrant, intense and lengthy as this should have been. Meh.

    December 4, 2015 - Similar to my last bottle. Ample sweetness and richness, with a honey, caramel and fig palate. Could be a bit more lengthy and vibrant, but this was very good. As expected, this improved on subsequent days.

    November 12, 2015 - I seem to remember liking this a lot more. The last time I had this I recall better acids and a bit more of a mature palate. This time around it was a bit softer and lighter. Still delicious with nice caramel and dried fruit flavors, but not really as precise as it could be.

    November 17, 2014 - Gjennomsiktig rødbrun. Medium pluss intensitet og framstår som relativt kompleks på nesa. Aromene går mot søte rosiner, svisker, nøtter og sjokolade. En litt stikkende duft av alkohol hvis servert ved for høy temp, og serveres derfor best lett avkjølt. Medium pluss fylde. Stor konsentrasjon. Smaker hovedsakelig søtlig rosin/sviske. Lang ettersmak. Sto åpen i ca 2mnd før flasken var tømt. Tapte ingenting på det, snarere tvert imot. Veldig godt!
