Very good! Nice fruit, minerals, acidity. Lacking a bit in complexity compared to the GG big brothers, but a very nice riesling indeed.

Very nice, good structure. Better on day 2-3 so will surely hold for years to come.

Decent back-bone and acidity. Red fruit and some blueberries, and moderate oak. A good drink, works well with food.

Classic HQ chianti, with cherries, dark fruit, italian herbs and nicely integrated oak. Great balance, acidity and tannins in good shape. Will probably improve further with a few years more on the back but a very solid drink already!

Gotta love it when you have high expectations - and they are exceeded!
Fresh fruit with apricots, lime and a touch of flowers. Mineral and perhaps a touch of petroleum. Nice balance between acidity and richness/sweetness from the fruit. Long. Very good now, probably even better in the years to come.

Way past its prime. Not very pleasant, might have been an off bottle or the wine is simply on a fast pace downhill.

Brick, almost brown in color. Looks to be at least 5 years older than it actually is. Nice red fruit - raspberry, cherries - spices and leather. Acitidy is fresh and tannins are round, perhaps a bit on the dry side. Long taste. Very good!

Showing a bit of age, but still has lots of life left. Good dark fruit with black currant and cherries. The finish had a bit too much vanilla for my taste. Still a fairly good drink.

I got none of the meat/bacon tones from last tasting, but one of my guests did. Still a bit surprising. To me, this bottle was fresher, with more both red and dark fruit. Good balance. Most likely the food pairing that brought out different characteristics.

Fairly rich yellow color. Nice nose with yellow apple, minerals and a hint of butter. The taste carries the profile of the nose, but adds citrus and even more minerality. Starting to show some age but still with youthful acidity. Good!

Initially typical Ribera, with black cherry and blueberry on the nose and fruit with a touch of oak on the palate. After an hour or so I got loads of meat and bacon on the finish - almost Rhone-like. Very strange, will be interesting to see if the next bottle shows this as well. Good acidity, albeit both fruit and structure is a bit thin compared to e.g. Condado de Haza.

D: Mycket blommig och fruktig doft, med burkpersika i spetsen. Nästan Gewürz-näsa.
S: Torr smak men blommig och fruktig. Päron och persika, lite örter på slutet. Oväntat låg syra.

Lovely nose with red berries, herbs, spices and some oak. The taste has great balance of acidity, tannins and red fruit. Long finish. The wine will last a long time still, but is also very good right now.

Surprisingly slender, at when least served below room temp. Showing slight signs of aging, with some violets on the finish I have not noticed earlier. A bit lacking in fruit, still good tannins.

Definitely over the hill, drunk from a half bottle. A touch of complexity from aging but all, and I mean all, fruit has gone. Very thin.

Very dark color. Nose is fruity but not over the top. The taste is full and fairly well balanced with tannins and acidity in good shape. Remarkable quality for the price paid!

Loads of fruit on the nose, with raspberries leading the way, and strawberry jam and herbs coming after. The taste carries the same flavors, acidity keeps the feeling fresh. The bottles will be empty before you know it..

Powerful assie-style shiraz. Plums and other dark fruits with chocolate on the finish. Tannins and acidity held up nicely providing a good balance overall. Still, assie-style for sure and the high alcohol does show a bit.

Lime, granny smith apples and a bit of petroleum. Hints of exotic fruits. Long and tasty finish. Well made and a good drink both on its own and with food. Drinking nicely already but should keep for many years more.

Fairly expressive nose with raspberry and sour cherries. Taste carries the cherries and has fairly high acidity. Slender, as expected. The finish is fairly short but all in all the wine worked decently with a simple pasta.

Cassis, dark fruit and oak on the nose. Fresh and elegant. Taste is long and fairly slender with fruit and berries (cassis!). The structure and balance is very good, with nice acidity and tannins.

D: Ganska stor och lockande doft. Rostat kaffe/fat, en aning mint, cassis.
S: Syrlig och frisk, nästan slank. Röda bär och påtagligt låga tanniner för CS. Cassis, blåbär. Medelfylligt, och det känns att alkoholen är nedåt 12%.
