    July 6, 2014 - Another outstanding bottle. The spice on the nose was more pronounced than the two in 2012. Saved some for day 2, and it held up reasonably well. But was definitely better on day 1.

    February 17, 2013 - Chinese Dinner in L.A. (Elite Chinese Restaurant - Los Angeles, CA): Probably spent about an hour in the decanter. Lovely aromatics, this is all class. Incredible floral notes, red berries, and earthy notes. Obviously this is a young wine, but it already shows incredible potential with its balance, pure fruit and acidity. The complete package.

    December 12, 2012 - Bit oaky at first, with whiffs of oriental spice, sandalwood and tree bark. Then come hints of animal - like a sweaty horseback. Opens up to bright ripe raspberry and red cherry aromas, assisted by liquorice and crushed rocks. Tastewise relatively light-bodied and slender with bright fresh acidity, silky smooth mouthfeel, fine spicy tannins and nicely lingering pastille-like flavours of red fruit and rocks. Really elegant, well balanced and enjoyable already - also very transparent, pure and not too oaky - yet appears to have more layers to unlock in a few years time.

    October 19, 2012 - Another great showing for this wine. Sweet, round, great balance and creamy texture. Long finish.

    October 6, 2012 - Drank over 4 hours. Light in color, however the nose is dense red and black fruit with come coffee and caramel notes as well as lots of spice. The palate matches the nose, but no caramel and more more sweet red fruit with some metallic notes. Nice depth and grip with a long and relatively tannic finish. Very good, needs some time to round out.
