  • Restaurantkøb i CPH. Der er lidt bundfald men ikke meget - bare hæld forsigtigt. Farven er tæt mørkerød med lidt lilla tone. Duften er meget speciel med animalske toner og lidt jord måske. Det er direkte et turn off med denne duft da jeg betragter duften af vinen som en væsentlig del af oplevelsen. Smagen er krydderet, fyldig med toner af mørke bær og vanille. Der er en alt for dominerende syre og alkoholisk eftersmag hvilket jeg ikke bryder mig om. Drukket til lidt ost og brød, men bør have mere modspil fra noget krydderet mad og måske en bøf.

  • Old world style yummy... yes there is a nose to this wine that is different but not in a bad way as one might infere based upon prior reviews. This wine smells like nature... it has all the elements in there... dark fruit, we leather, damp soil... the mouth is full with fruit, spice and wood... finish is long and pleasing. Nothing to dislike here...

  • Certaines petites bouteilles méconnues ou nos attentes sont généralement faibles nous amènes quelques fois des surprises exaltantes ! Quel belle syrah ! La bouteille semble trouée tellement son précieux liquide se vide précipitamment. Une belle richesse qui s'impreignent litéralement en bouche pour notre plus grand plaisir. On en redemande.

  • As always, solid effort from Adam Tolmach. I was expecting more fruit, but very balanced. Dark red color, chewy, but very earthy with good tannin balance. Very nice wine, well made for the price.

  • Very dark color. Nose is amazing and funky - grilled meat, garrigue, cedar smoke, earth, herbs, sea mist, blackberry and black cherry. Palate doesn't disappoint, with luscious dark fruits, spice and some minerality. Great balance of acidity, tannin & fruit and very good length.

    Dear Friends,

    I'm avoiding a wild ram as I type this (I'm not kidding - it's beside the road and looks quite menacing although probably won't come near me) - a fact of life up in central British Colombia where wild (large) mountain animals continue to run free. I'm going to take a photo of this and post it on the web site next week as it's one of the largest animals I've seen in a while. I like the concept of wild animals with room to roam but the size of this ram looks like it could puncture my little rental car and push it off the side of the road. I stopped to take in the view but maybe I'll move a few hundred yards down the road...

    To cap off the pre-weekend festivities, here are three top wines from Ojai, all at prices that are eye-opening indeed. All have perfect provenance. We do not have much at this price level, so please be patient with Niki.

    Have a great weekend everyone -

    - Jon Rimmerman
