May 27, 2014 - The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle. It smells like mineral and stoniness. The body is medium/full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity.

May 2, 2014 - I like this wine. Decanted for 2 hours prior to drinking and it could've used even more time. Basically, it's still a baby and will likely knit together more in the bottle. That said, it's dark and brooding and fairly enjoyable now. Dark fruit dominates with a good dose of cocoa powder tannins.

May 1, 2014 - This bottle seemed painfully young and very modern. I would hold this and hope for the best. I'm holding mine.

April 2, 2014 - This wine is made in a modern, new-world style. Gobs of fruit, low acidity. It is reminiscent of Australian shiraz. I don't much like this style.

December 11, 2013 - Getrunken über 3 Tage. Am ersten Abend noch ein sehr kräftiger Wein, etwas verschlossen, nicht ganz einfach. Am 2. Abend bereits deutlich freundlicher, tolle Nase und weich, harmonisch im Mund, am dritten Tag dann perfekt. schön ausbalanciert, weiche Röstaromen, Erde, Waldbeeren, Kirsche, Vanhille, dazu wieder Tabak. Toller Wein, der mindestens noch 5-10 Jahre lagern darf.
