    July 14, 2022 - Moreller, tobakk, plommer på nese. Langt tørrere i munnen. Litt tråe tanniner, ikke topp kons, men sødmefull deilig frukt. Svært lang og belansert. 92

    July 1, 2022 - Perfect fill, cork a little elevated but only saturated about 1/3. This wine smelled a bit stewed on opening but really improved with air, then back to roasted in the decanter and finally into balance again. I’ve scarcely seen such an evolution with air

    At the end of the day, this is a wine whose best days must be behind it, and yet, with enough oxygen, it remains a delight. Somewhere between stewed tomato and bitter chocolate, with brick red fruit and a little mint, these should be drunk without remorse

    February 26, 2022 - Pretty much everything I dislike in winemaking especially given the price point. No sense of place. This could have been from anywhere. Super disappointing as this producer came highly recommended by some.

  • melvinyeowq Does not like this wine:

    February 25, 2022 - Dinner at Bellyhappychef: Bought this based on some glowing reviews by others but everyone at the table agreed that this was a soulless and uninteresting wine. Mainly unintegrated oak, glossy and dull fruit.

    October 25, 2020 - Superb - sweet spot complex long finish, well integrated tanins, nice fruits, dark fruits, bit of iron blood, forest floor
