Maybe flawed bottle, but stored correct over the years. Appeared as over the top which I found strange for only 10+ years.

Wow! One of the best pinot noirs ive ever drunk. Typical burgundy Pinot noir. Extremely long with layers and layers of taste. Unfortunately my only one and not available in Norway (VMP).

Perfect match to pizza (napoletana style). Powerfull yet lower on hard tannins than many other barberas. This is the way I like my barbera. New contemporary favorite!

Wow! Just wow! Felt like a very Young wine when I opened it, but after an hour or some, the nice Petro of an agening Riesling came along. Beautiful! Getting integrated but still has a very good kick. Lots of acid still. Ffs! I wish I bought more of these...

Nicly integrated, surprisingly high amount of acidity still. Probably could have cellared for longer period, but was outstanding. Drank it alone without food

Good wine. Nicely paired both with standard sushi and dim sum with some chilli. Preferably sushi. Had for two years in cellar. Maybe grown a little bit will not be a great wine in my opinion.

Wow what a delicious and mouthwatering Pinot noir!!! Still super fresh and drank perfectly now. Don’t have to much experience with aging Pinot but this was marvelous. Probably going to last many years in basement..

Left this one in the basement last summer and let it age for a year. Turned out just fine. A bit more complex than last year and a delicious nose to it. Short on pallet but that’s rose I guess. no signs of an over aged wine. Have very little experience with cellaring rose wine, but have read that Bandol migth work. I’ll buy this wine again this year and try to cellar for to and three years.

Any other experiences on this wine out there?

Wonderful Lebanese with 50% carbernet Sauvignon an 50% Syrah. Drank over 2 days. Tasty and good the first evening, but very thigth. Opened really good the second day. Aromatic and complex. Dark ruby red. Probably going to add some for the cellar and keep 3-5 years. Fun to try more Lebanese wine!!

Last bottle in cellar from 2007. Dont believe that this wine has peaked yet as it still had both primary fruits and good tannins. Drank together With entrecote whics was marvelous.
There is light sediment in the bottle. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

Wonderful wine. still lots of tanins which i Guess would make it good for the cellar at least 2-3 more years. had it With lobster and shrimps which perhaps was not the best combination. Unfortunately the last bottle in my cellar.

Drank my last bottle this weekend and it was still a georgeous wine. High on tannins and could probably still be cellared for a long time. Would definitely have this with white fish next time.

Pop and poured from screw cork. Had my previous bottle about a year ago and had definitively developed further. In addition to other reviews of this wine (which I agree on), there were still a lot of good acid on this wine. Maybe gets a little rounder in some years. Unfortunately my last bottle of this vintage

Probably drank this puppy many years to early. Short on the after taste but beautiful on the nose. Hope others have more luck with this one. I wouldn’t drink this in at least 2 years

Lovely neb. Had this for some years now and the second time I’ve tried it. A bit more developed than about a year ago. Round and distant tannins. Don’t think this will developer much further.

Alrigth champagne style from Luxembourg. A bit on the sweet side for me and to much green Apple and pear. Maybe past it’s peek, so had notes of yeast and a wee bit to clear on the alchohol. I’d love to see it dryer. Good quality for price

Lovely little cherry flavored drink. Probably nice to some tomato pasta/pizza, but that’s it.
Enjoy, consume and move on :)

Beautiful wine, but needed a lot of air. Drank over the course of two days. Day one, very little nose to it and almost bitter on the tounge. Day two, the wine had opened up and gave all of the characteristics of a great Barolo. Still strong tannins but I guess that is normal for such a young barooo. Not opening a bottle of this for st least four to five years.

Not the best american nebbiolo production I’ve encountered. Short tail and bone dry. Youthful and high in tannins. No idea if this will develope in the right direction. Not my cup of tea...

Beautiful barbera. High acidity but balanced well with the dark fruits. Hints of vanilla, marzipan, oak and forest on the nose. 14,5% is on the high note for me, but the wine matched Beef Ragu and pasta very well.

Delightful barbera. A wee short on the tail but fruity and dry. Went very well with classic grilled sirloin

Exciting new world neb. Drank over two days. Day one gave a traditional classic Nebbiolo undertone but with a very fruity taste to it. I actually had to check if it was a Zinfandel that I was drinking. Seccond day had much classier Nebbiolo taste to it. Lovely new world nebbiolo. I’ll try to get more of these for my cellar!

A red wine that really matched red curry with shrimps. Try it out if you’d like an alternative to white and curry!

I felt it had notes of lime, white flowers, flint and green plum. Further it had hints of petroleum and probably developes further in that direction. A tiny bit to sweet for me, but matched well with the Xmas pork (Norwegian style). I really wish I had more of these in my cellar as it was still quite young.

Juicy and young wine. Lots of primary flavors but a little to light for my Bordeaux palate.

Had this together with a dry aged cote du boef and matched very well. Still good tannins and will save the next bottle for another year.

Got this bottle back in 2013 and been saving for a good moment. Opened it up last weekend and let it breathe for five hours. I think this has passed its prime. Normally I wouldn’t be worried for letting a amarone in magnum rest for ten years but this was daft. Showed good fruits but was way to strong for me. 16,5% is almost fortifies red for me. Had it to a steak with traditional root fruits which matched ok, but alcohol was to present. Pitty...

Nice pinot noir that went very well with oven baked cod and sundried tomato risotto. The wine was decanted for 3 hours and opened up nicely. Definitely a wine that needs for for my palate.

Beautiful aged wine to match the classic Norwegian tomato based Bacalao dinner. It needed 2-3 hours of airing to open up. I thought it was gone when first opened it. Personally I believe that this wine needs to accompany food.

Still very tannic. Great with lamb shank. Only aired for one hour which was way to short. Wine opened up I glass but should have been opened at least 3 hours before consumption

Fin rødvin til skrei middag servert med ertestuing og bacon. Kort på ettersmak og kunne med fordel lagt et par år til.
