    August 18, 2016 - Best bottle (@ Weindorf Kirchheim): See last tasting note: Poser wine without much substance.

    May 7, 2016 - Baked leather. Rich blueberry hints, slight cider and coffee after tones. Decanted in reidel, served in reidel somm glasses. Cut my finger while pepping food and drinking this wine. I'm ok if you guys are wondering. If you're not, it went very well with steak and sweet potatoes. I wished I had more of this vintage.

    April 23, 2016 - Glass: Schott Zwiesel Burgundy
    1 Glass poured with Coravin, about 1h aeration.
    Well, this wine reminds me exactly of an American muscle car like the modern Camaros or Mustang's: Stylish, cool look (bottle is massive and stylish), great sound (intense nose) but cheap and with poor Quality on the inside and cannot get the horsepower on the track. Same with this wine: It is massiv, but lacks complexity. Broad, jammy, medium length. Like the muscle cars it is a poser. Goes well with grilled meat, but too expensive for the Overall quality. Potential? Well, it can last for much longer, but will not improve.

    January 4, 2016 - not overly complex but strong red cherry and currant notes, tannins are fairly well integrated. no noticeable heat as some others have mentioned.

    December 18, 2015 - Dark purple color. The nose and the palate are big with dark fruit - jammy black cherry, fig, and plum. This is at the edge of overripeness for my palate, and I picked up a hint of bitterness on the finish. The tannins are rounded and integrated. Overall, this wine has a plush mouthfeel and ripe fruit, but it really didn't grab my attention. It was perfectly drinkable, though. I found that dark chocolate matched well because it brought forth raspberry notes in the wine.
