    December 27, 2015 - Great vintage port.

    October 19, 2015 - A private tasting (Jan-Dirk Taams' residence, Groot-Ammers, Netherlands): Stalky and difficult nose, cocoa and violets; rather dry on the palate, seems to lack the power and ripe fruit I was expecting; liquorice finish, lacks some length. We will have to wait a long time for this one and the waiting may well be in vain.

    June 26, 2015 - As in my previous note from 2013 this is a wonderful Port ! Perhaps somewhat more closed on this occasion but still with that cassis, lavender and dark chocolate character on both the nose and palate. Intense fruit and structure on the palate with fine but evident tannin backbone. Fine spirit finish. Very young but losing some of the primary lusciousness that was previously present.

    April 4, 2015 - stunning rich juicy red and black fruit. Fresh tannins not too heavy - needs a 1 he decant ideally 2+... Amazing with a long life in front but very enjoyable now. Mouthfilling

    March 6, 2015 - taste develops into more complex notes after 2-3 hours of decanting, red fruits, some cedar wood, not yet at its peak, might need some more years in the cellar
