  • [from 375ml]: still very tight and tannic, with cool black fruits, good syrah depth and intense powdered minerality dominating the finish. Still primary, this looks set from an excellent evolution over the next 10 years

  • Brilliant stuff! Lots of raw meat, bacon, red fruit, herbs and quite a lot of grund black pepper (though not nearly as distinct as in the '13).

    Very nice balance on the palate with a good, fresh acidity, lots of juicy and succulent fruitiness, a hint of bitterness and some elegant, but firm tannins. Good intensity and a long finish.

    An outstanding wine, especially for the humble price of 250SEK ($30). Drinks very well right now, but I will try to hold a bottle or two for at least 5-7 years.

  • Had a quick sample from the same bottle as LILJA.

    Right upon opening the nose is wide open with lots of bacon, raw meat, pure blackberry juice, fresh grounded black pepper, some black olives and violets.

    Dry, medium(+) acidity, medium(+) body and tannin. Very silky and refreshing with a medium(+) flavor intensity and long finish. Still youthful with loads of potential though it's drinking lovely today. This is outstanding quality Syrah!

  • On the nose: black pepper, olives, black cherries, anise, violets, thyme, and black berries. This wine wasn't so closed as some of the comments here state. I found it to be in a great place, and believe it will get better, but drinking well now.

  • Decanted and monitored it's progress. Best in hour two of three, showing elegantly restrained fruit, olives, pepper, tobacco and outstanding future potential. Too, am convinced our opening this wine at half time today singlehandedly enabled the Seahawks to beat St. Louis. All is right in the world. ;)
