I had this a week back, and it was a good, straight-forward dolcetto with sour cherry, mediterranean spices, sandy tannins and vitalizing acidity. Good wih food like pork and chicken.

I bought this bottle five years ago, and I´m glad I did, although it isn't my type of wine - too big and bold, too alcoholic, but it's good to try wines from regions you usually don't come across (Bandol). I don't think I would have bought this bottle today, and in a way that is a shame, because it is well made and reflects its regions hot climate very well. A rich, developed and complex nose with tones of dark fruit, chocolate, spices, herbs, coffee and coca-cola. Fullbodied on the palate though the tannins have been rounded off. A fair amount of fruit is still there and chocolate, coffee and licorice accompanies it. Decent acidity, good length and a fiery finish 15,5%. Good!

Excellent wine! A mature, developed and nuanced bouqet with tones of dark, ripe fruit, a touch of oak, spices, licorice and black tea. More than mediumbodid on the palate with dark fruit and vanilla, round tannins, sufficent acidity and good length with some heat. Peaking now if You ask me, but will hold for at least a year. Good match to a Boeuf bourgignon.

Riktigt bra Albariño med toner av gul stenfrukt (persika, aprikos), päron och vita blommor. God fruktig smak som fortfarande behåller syra, skärpa och fräschör. Inget att spara på. Passade mycket bra till grillade grönsaker med marinerade och vitlöksfrästa kammusslor.

I had this bottle a week ago. No notes, but what struck me was how smooth and elegant it was. There were fruit (pears, apple, lime) but all very nuanced and slender and with a fresh but not sharp acidity. Maybe a little thin. 89-90 p.

Very nice with tones of pineapple, pear, yellow stonefruit and white flowers on the nose. Mediumbodied but with a somewhat creamy texture this is a fresh and fruity wine with a mild, soothing acidity and good length. Will hold for a few years, but I can't say wether it will improve or not. Very good now though!

Rich and yet a developed and fairly complex nose with dark fruit, herbs, wet forest soil and licorice. On the palate the wine is fullbodied, with round tannins, good balancing acidity, very good length and a somewhat fiery finish. A mature wine!
Grenache dominated wine without wood-contact (could have fooled me) but made with full stems. Lovely wine, but the alcohol (14,5%) leaves too big a mark. We had it with roasted lamb, fetacheese-creme, red wine sauce, our own potatoes and grilled tomatoes. 89-90 p.

Utan tvekan ett av de bästa viner jag druckit!

Här ryms både frukt, (mjuk) kraft, elegans, längd och komplexitet.
Färgen är ljust rubinröd med skiftningar i tegel.
En inbjudande och utvecklad doft med röd frukt (körsbär), torkad frukt, vanilj, läder, tobak och lite ceder.
I munnen är det silkeslent, knappt medelfylligt, elegant med mjuka, runda tanniner, typiskt bra syra, och bra längd med en ren, fin, sakta avklingande avslutning. Smaken är fortfarande fruktigt generös men med balans och nyanser.
Jag tror det här håller ihop bra minst fem år till, men det är ett toppvin nu och det är alltid svårt att sia, särskilt om framtiden!
93-94 p. Nu får jag se fram mot 2004:an om ett antal år.

A very nice bottle indeed! Lots of fruit, lots of power and intensity! Dark fruit (blueberry, blackberry) herbs and some licorice. The tannins still bite back, but with all the fruit they are needed and welcomed. There is enough acidity and the length is outstanding. Peaking now?

Det här är kanske det mest välkända riojavinet av alla, och det lever upp till ryktet med mycket röd frukt, vanilj och tillräckligt med tanniner och syra för att inte bli jolmigt. Bra längd dessutom. Något generiskt, men mycket vin för pengarna, och ett vin som passar till såväl lättare kötträtter, kyckling, stekt fisk eller paella!

Mörk rubinröd färg (med lite fällningar).
God, utvecklad, något eldig doft med inslag av svarta vinbär, violpastiller, gammalt skåp och blöt skog.
I munnen är vinet medelfylligt plus, med småbitiga tanniner, bra syra och mer än godkänd längd. Lite klen på frukt. Doften bättre än smaken, men ett helt ok matvin.
Tiĺl en grytstekt fläskkarré med äppelsås och kokt potatis.

No notes, but this was a good and flirty wine with lots of red berrys and spices on the nose. On the palate it was mediumbodied minus, fruity with racy acidity and with a decent length. Good qpr and very enjoyable! Drink now and the following year.

Quite a dark colour for a Pinot noir: light ruby red with blue nuances.
On the nose there is both red and dark fruit, pepper, licorice, oak, coffee and choclate.

On the palate the wine is smooth, almost mediumbodied with good acidity, maybe a little short on fruit (red and dark berries) but with tertiary flavors emerging such as choclate and coffee. The finish is good and long with a kiss of wet stone. A mature and balanced bottle.

I had it with grilled duck's breast wih a balsamico-sauce and mashed potatoes spiced up with parmesan cheese and truffle oil.

This is what I wrote about the 2017 vintage:

Fruity and aromatic nose with tones of pear, lemon and grass or herbs. On the palate the wine is young and fruity, smooth, light and yet crispy with a slightly bitter finish. A reliable friend!

It counts for this vintage as well!

Colour: Blue to dark purple
Nose: low intense, with tones of predominantly red fruit, (bitter) herbs, pink grapefruit and roses.
Palate: dry, meduim bodied with good acidity, structuring tannins, red fruit (strawberry, raspberry, plums) and a good mineral finish with a bitter twist. There is some elegance to this garnacha wine-well done! 87-88 p.

Mogen och nyanserad doft med inslag av mörka bär, fat och vanilj. Medelfylligt med goda och utvecklade nyanser, där det ryms torkad frukt, fat, lite läder och en frisk syra som ger vinet skjuts och bra längd. Mjuka, snälla tanniner ger tillräcklig struktur. Riktigt bra för priset.

Rich and fruity scent with tones of dark berries and spices (pepper and laurel). Fullbodied, rich, fruity but a bit short on acidity this is a good, flirty wine which in my opinion would rise to very good with a little more depth and structure. Better with food, and I had it with beef patties and mashed potatoes with parmesan and truffle oil.

Colour: dark ruby red
Nose: a pleasant scent of ripe dark, fruit (plums, blackberrys) coffee, spices and oak with a somewhat fiery finish.
Palate: generous, flirty and fruit-forward with ripe, dark fruit, with nuances of vanilla and coffee.
Good balancing acidity, and really good length with a mild sting of alcohol!

Jag drack den här flaskan för ett tag sedan och gjorde inga anteckningar, men en finfin flaska var det! Förvånansvärt pigg, röd frukt, men med typiska mogna riojakännetecken som nyanser av läder och thé. Vinet utmärkte sig med sin sömlöshet, sammmetsstruktur och balans. Håller nog i tio år till. 91-92 p.

A rich and pleasant bouqet with tones of yellow stonefruit and popcorn with melted butter. On the palate the wine is mediumbodied with tones of yellow stonefruit and some citrus. The oak is there, but it is beatifully integrated and there is enough acidity to keep it fresh. Not a wine to put away in the cellar, but a real treat to drink now. We had it with grilled salmon.

Mörk blåröd färg.

Ganska rik, aningen eldig doft med nyanser av mogna jordgubbar och plommon och ett stänk choklad.

Medelfyllig, balanserad smak med inslag av söta röda bär, frisk syra, snälla, runda tanniner med bra längd. Ett moget vin utan någon komplexitet att tala om, men gott och smakrikt utan att gå över styr.
Från gamla Garnacha-stockar (ca 75 år) på hög höjd i Navarra (400-600 m) och med 14 månader på fat av fransk ek. Inget att spara på, men håller säkert bra ett par år.
Till en ugnsgrillad fläskkarré med potatismos och en rödvinsås med inslag av plommon och viltbuljong. Yummy!

Ett lätt och friskt vin med klingande syra och fina nyanser av äpple, fläder och melon. Doften lite fruktigare och rikare, men fortfarande med sommar- och medelhavskänsla. Perfekt till stekta bläckfiskringar!

Lite fascinerande att två olika Pinot Noir kan vara så olika och ändå så tydligt samma druva. Jag gillade verkligen den australiska Punt Road-särskilt med tanke på priset. Fräscht, fruktigt och flirtigt! Det här är både tuffare och elegantare. Stramt, slankt och ungt, men med tillräckligt mycket röda bär för att förföra mig, och naturligtvis en klingande syra som sätter igång salivproduktionen. Kommer bara att bli bättre de närmaste 4-5 åren.

I liked this bottle/vintage a lot better than the previous one (2009). Quite a discrete nose with tones of violets, blueberry, coffee, licorice and herbs. On the palate there is good red fruit, with a green, herbal, metallic touch and a good, lovely acidity. There is complexity and elegance here, and I will buy more of this!

This is one of my favorite wines, so this might be biased, but nevertheless I found a fruity nose with tones of dark cherry, plums and ripe strawberry, fragrant spices and vanilla.On the palate there is likewise an abundance of red fruit, some chocolate, vanilla and oak. The wine is almost fullbodied, but with a remarkable freshness. Good length and a nice, clean finish. Excellent!

Still a top-notch wine! Fruity and flirty, but with balance and structure.

Den här flaskan och årgången skilde sig en del från den förra (2008). Frukten (mörka bär, i synnerhet krossade blåbär) finns här, kroppen liksom syran och örterna, men 2008 hade rundare och snällare tanniner. Även den här hade en bra längd, men inte lika slående som 2008:an. Den här flaskan har mer struktur och är i högre grad matkrävande.
Passade bra till högrevsburgare med gruyere, bacon och tryffelmajonäs!

Rich, expressive fruity nose with black fruit (plums, cherrys, blackberrys) a touch of oak and spices. Fullbodied on the palate with lots of fruit, balancing acidity and a somewhat fiery final, this is still a teenager with baby fat on the pretty face and full of energy and talent! Very good, but if I had an other bottle I would let it rest for at least another 2-3 years.
We had it with veal and ricotta patties, oven roasted potatoes and a creamy mushroom-sauce. Good!

Nice riesling with a clear petroleum-scent . On the palate I find lemon, zest and apple. Good length and slightly less than mediumbodied with racy acidity. Worked just fine with fried cod, boiled potatoes and remouladsauce. Could buy more of this!

Mörk, blåröd färg.
Yppig, rik doft med mörk frukt (plommon, björnbär) kryddor (peppar och lagerblad) och en druvtypisk touch i form av leverkorv!!!
I munnen är vinet fylligt, med en förförisk, undanglidande fruktsötma, lite torra, strukturerande tanniner och bra balanserande syra, riktigt bra längd och med ett fint och rent avslut.

Strålande till en köttgryta med smörmättat persiljemos med ett stänk tryffel i.

This was a treat! Rich, fruity and yet nuanced and complex nose with sweet, ripe, yellow stonefruit (apricot), honey, wild flowers, vegetable broth and a slight sting of alcohol! Fat, waxy, rich and almost overwhelming on the palate, but with a remarkable balancing acidity, this bottle left me ever as bewondered as I hoped when I bought it!
If you can get your hands on it - buy it!

Try it with a foi de gras, or with a gravlax sandwich!

Nice, fruity intense and yet nuanced scent with red and dark berries, oak and spices like cinnamon and ginger. On the palate the wine is mediumbodied, with a good lingering acidity (although not completely in harmony with other elements) some fine tannins; plenty of ripe red fruit like strawberry and raspberry; spices and a touch of soil. Good enough length!
A rich interpretation of Pinot, but still with balance. I had it with parmesanfilled chickenbreasts and a mushroom risotto.

Rik, direkt doft med gul stenfrukt, citrus och rostade fat.
I munnen smakrikt, runt och fylligt, med bra längd. Här finns en hel del frukt men också mycket fat, lite för mycket, speciellt i finishen (och jag är ingen ekallergiker). Jag hoppas att det här vinner på några års lagring. 86 p.
Funkade ok till en hummerpasta.

Andra flaskan, 9 Maj 2019
Tillbaka på rätt köl igen. Kanske var det jag som var ute och cyklade. Den här flaskan var riktigt bra. Smakrik, frisk och balanserad med mycket citron, lite zest och lite, lite rostad ek. Till en lättpanerad koljafile med smörstekta rotfruktsstavar och brynt smör.

Mörk, rubinröd färg med tydligt ljusare, tegelröda kanter.
Uttrycksfullt och vitalt med mycket mörka bär i näsan (svarta vinbär och mörka körsbär) lite läder, lite kaffe och en del kryddor. Doften återspeglas i smaken som är fyllig, balanserad och mogen, med mycket mörka bär, viss komplexitet och runda, snälla tanniner. Lika mycket Argentina som Cabernet; rikt och generöst, med struktur och stor kropp. Moget, men med flera år kvar i toppform!

Inga anteckningar, men jag gillade det här skarpt! Lättsam, flirtig doft med egen karaktär där det finns mycket röda bär i botten och ovanpå det något mera aromatiskt: blommor?
Lätt och sirligt i munnen med smak av lingon och andra röda bär, men det blir inte snålt och snipigt. Ett lättsamt vin med karaktär och som säkert klarar ett par år i källaren, men som smakar alldeles utmärkt just nu. Passar både till grillad kyckling och svenska köttbullar!

I should have kept this for at least a couple of years. Not that it was bad, but this has a lot more to give. Restrained on the nose and on the palate initially, and it took some time for it to open up. Blackberries, white peppar and a typical touch of blood or meat on the nose. Almost fullbodied although the acidity keeps it lean, this wine will get better for at least five years and hold up for another five. Beautiful and bountyful at the end of the bottle, this is a wine I will buy again when I see it. We had it on Christmas-eve with mooseburgers, ajvar relish, tzatziki and oven roasted potatoes.

A mature wine. Intense nose with yellow fruit (apples, peaches, pineapple, pickled lemon) butter and vanilla and still with nuances. Yellow fruit on the palate as well, very round, very savory and also quite oaky. Good length with balanced acidity and a nice touch of minerality in the finnish.
We had it with poached cod and white asparagus in white wine sauce.

This wine is definitly one of my favorites. The first time I tried I thought nothing much of it. Maybe I got an off bottle or had an off day, but now I know better. The wines I love tends to stand out in balance and harmony. I mean it is hard not to love a really old and developed wine with plenty of nuances and complexity, but I don't come across them too often. Bottles with a "mid-term cellaring" on the other hand, I do have the oportunity to pick up from my own cellar, and the Poliziano Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the best.
On the nose the wine is rich with ripe, dark cherry, mild spices, oak and a touch of soil. On the palate there is a lovely balance between the ripe dark and red fruit, round, soft tannins and fenomenal acidity. The flavour is long and delicious. 90-91 p.
I had it with meatballs in tomatosauce. Perfect match!

On the nose the wine is fruity (blueberry, dark cherry, plums) with notes of chocolate, sweet licorice and a touch of green herbs. On the palate the wine is smooth, velvety and fruity with a good length and finish. Maybe a little too opulent and frivolous for my taste, it could benefit from a little bit more structure and elegance in shape of tannins and acidity, but definitly well made!
100 % bobal!

Just like Bons Vinhos I had this at a dinner. We tried it against one cheaper Barolo and one Langhe Nebbiolo, and it really stood out: structured and smooth, silky and firm, tasty and balanced. 91-92. Oh, and in mho it's time to drink up. This will hold for a few years, but it' s peaking now.

Lovely, typical and nuanced nose with tones of strawberry, dark cherry, sandalwood, coffee and roasted oak. On the palate it is clear that the wine has reached some maturity as the jam-tones are gone and balance and harmony reigns with velvet tannins, smooth acidity and dark fruit. Lovely smooth texture and a good finish adds to the overall positive impresssion. Drink now and the year to come!

This is a real flirter! On the nose the wine is a bit closed or mute with nuances of red berries, cold sausages and wet stones. On the palate I find dark berries, coffee, choclate, violets and roasted oak. The wine is fruity with a good, balancing acidity and round smooth tannins. Still very young, but in a good, flirty straight forward way.

Lite tillknäppt och blekt till en början, där jag saknade den vanliga friskheten hos Alvarinho, men vinet kom snart till sig och visade upp mycket gul, saftig stenfrukt i näsa och mun kombinerat med citrus med viss sötma (mandarin) och lite rostade toner. Mjukt och behagligt men utan att bli tungt och slappt. Lite örter och mineraler i en bra finish. Önskar att jag hade ett par flaskor till. Satt bra till stekt panerad fisk!
Håller nog bra åtskilliga år till, men redan gott och förvånansvärt utvecklat.

Basic but good and well-balanced PN with a nose containing tones of ripe, red berries and a whiff of coffee. Fruity, flirty and with a good body, there is still enough acidity to make this a pleasant experience, although I find the tones of licorice a little disturbing.

Fruktigt, fylligt och smakrikt vin med inslag av päron, melon och örter. Doft av citronskal, päron och lite rengöringsmedel. Bra syra och ett lite bittert avslut. Passade bra till rökgrillad lax, men sämre att sitta att smutta på.
