    June 22, 2015 - Remarkably fresh nose with dark fruit and herbs. Well balanced palate with enough freshness and some alcohol sharpness on the finish. Will live for a while of course. Just a little better on day two.

    June 17, 2015 - Wunderful wine. A lot of plum, cherries and smoke. Maybe to wait another Twitter years! Not full open now!

    May 9, 2015 - Slow oxed for two hours prior to drinking. Nice soft fruit profile with a touch of smoke and earth and nice long finish. Really nice.

    June 15, 2014 - Aging much slower than the 2007. Great expression of Grenache, red cherries, kirsch, lots of minerals, greath length..., I'm increasingly positiyve on the life expectancy of this wine.
