    October 26, 2013 - Intense and incredibly tannic on the back. Its all there but this puppy needs time. And its been open for three hours.

    August 30, 2013 - Is it wrong to score a wine that you drank while covered hands to feet with bug spray?
    OK, never mind...

    April 1, 2013 - Slow-O 30 minutes, served non-blind. Vastly different than prior bottles, this was thin, slighly muted and the acids dominated the fruit. Nothing elegant (or tasty for that matter) with tonight's performance. 2/3 of the bottle went into the fridge tonight, will check on it tomorrow. 14,0% abv

    March 23, 2013 - light, brick colour - very opaque - just not good. nose: full, sweet, comopte like - really boiled. taste: nice, quite high acidity - which we always welcome, tannins rather balanced; plums and blackberries. Finish short and very hot. Very modern RdM, with no finesse and elegancy. It could be anything but happened to be RdM unfortunetly. 85+

    December 13, 2012 - Pleasant RdM with a nice nose. A bit light bodied for this producer (vintage issue?). Bit of shmutz. Drink now . 87-88 pts
