  • Not what I recall from a few years ago. Dry earth, light black fruit and faint background licorice on the nose. Tannins have mellowed, however overall the palate has largely dried up with some sweet red fruit and earth. High acid and no real finish. Decanted 1 hour, consumed intermittently over the following two. Was better after two hours than initially but this wine (or this bottle at least) will not be measurably better with either more bottle or air time.

  • Kleur: Diep robijnrood, geen verkleuring Aroma / bouquet: Geconcentreerd en zwaar aroma. Uitgesproken donker fruit, bramen, zwarte bessen. Lactisch, yoghurt. Inkt-achtig, subtiel pepertje. Smaak / Afdronk: Powerwijn. Krachtige, frisse zuurgraad. Krachtige tannines. Enorme concentratie. prima balans tussen zuurgraad, tannine en alcohol. Dikke en sappige wijn. Finale: Indrukwekkend lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: Deze wijn vraagt meer geduld. Nog niet volwassen. In 2010 teveel alcohol, nu beter in balans. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 11 + Smaak / Afdronk: 16 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 90/100

  • Priorat (Jeff K's): Ruby/purple in color. The nose is earth with black raspberries and some cedar. This seemed thinner that most. Tart cherries on the palate. Slightly clipped. With air, it picks up body and length. Also some raspberries emerge. This needs air at this point to show what it has. Not sure how good it can be though.

  • For $100 great stuff. Coffee, spices, raspberries, floral and ripe fruits. A big style wine and should age for 10 plus years from now. Super long, complex finish. 94 -96.

  • Decanted 3.5+ hours. Anise, gingerbread, earth, pine needles, sweet red fruit, bittersweet dark chocolate. Overall rich and well-balanced. Tannins are a little strong but not harsh.
