  • Kleur: Diep robijnrood. Aroma / bouquet: Het typische bouquet van een belegen Cabernet-Sauvignon. Donker kersenfruit, gronderig, paddestoelen. Een vleugje stalgeur. Tertiair. En aangenaam! Smaak / Afdronk: Gematigde zuurgraad. Prachtige concentratie. Vol. Maar tegelijkertijd boterig zacht. Fantastisch rijpe tannines. Indrukwekkend lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: De Wine Advocate was buitengewoon kritisch, ik ben zeer enthousiast. Heerlijk. Mondvullend en boterzacht. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Smaak / Afdronk: 16 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 91/100

    Color: Deep ruby red Aroma / bouquet:. The typical bouquet of a mature Cabernet Sauvignon. Dark cherry fruit, earthy mushrooms. A hint of barnyard smell. Tertiary.

  • Gaja Masterclass with Gaia Gaja: Menthol, spice, toast and truffle. Good acidity on the palate, the wine still feels tight though, there is not a lot given away at this point in time and maybe another 5 years would help.

  • Opend 3 hours before dinner. Dark red/black color. Nose was black fruit, black currant. Palate was dark red/black fruit, black currant, spice. Very good balance. drank over 2 hours, it still keept the fruit.
    Will last for a long time, however I'm not sure it will develop a lot.
    Long finish.

  • Low expectations help delivery. Closer to the New World then old, the classy cab which didn't disappoint. I wish I had more.

  • Both Parker and Tanzer underrated this wine. Wonderful black cherries, raspberry undertones, mushrooms, spice (but not black pepper), hints of green pepper and 20+ second finish. This wine took about 30 minutes to fully open but had almost not sediment and is in the front half of its ideal drinking window.
