    June 15, 2014 - Based on other descriptions, I thought I was going to in awe, the reality was a little shy of that. I did only let it decant for about an hour, and I suspect it needed about 4, this is still just a baby with plenty of years still ahead .........

    January 7, 2014 - THE wine.....at least for me. I don´t know hy I don´t give this wine 100 points, but it is definitely the best wine I have ever tasted

    December 19, 2013 - This wine is pure heaven. I wish I knew how to describe the smell of the wine but neither me or my 4 buddies knew how to describe it. It is by FAR the best smell in a wine I could wish for. The wine is nothing short of spectacular. Extremely balanced and silky....like silk. I would but 50 bottles tomorrow if I could find them. This is my #1 wine of all time....maybe followed by the great La Clémence pomerol 2005.

    April 10, 2013 - The nose.....WOOOOOOOOOW, I don´t know how to describe it, it is just pure pleasure. This is by far the nicest nose I have ever had in a wine. The nose is worth a 100 points by itself. The wine is integrating beautifully, it is a wonderful wine. It tastes like a blend between California and Australia cabernet. The tanins are very sweet...delicious. Expect beautiful fruit. This is the wine that I will like to drink all my life if that was possible.
