    December 26, 2021 - Dunkelrote Robe. 2 Stunden karaffiert. Sehr dichte Nase, hohes Alkoholniveau, rote Beeren, Graphite.
    Nicht so maskulin wie erwartet. Doch recht sexy und sanft trotz präsenten Tanninen, die den Mundraum tapezieren. Sehr „easy to drink“, fast zu sehr für mein Gesmack. Sehr homogen, fehlt jedoch etwas Komplexität. Zu jung vielleicht.

    December 17, 2021 - Decanted for 4 hours and found the nose amazingly soft yet packed with red fruits and crème de cassis. The aroma lifting from the decanter certainly had my attention and anticipation.

    The palate was round and supple leading with both black & red berries, worn leather, graphite and vanilla. This is a full bodied wine that coats the mouth with balanced fruits, acid and defined tannin. Oddly, I didn’t find the layers of complexity I was expecting in such am amazing wine although it really delivered in flavor. The finish included a nice hang time with a mineral and creamy vanilla ending. I am in no hurry to enjoy my remaining bottles as the freshness at 11 years will persist over the next 10 years IMO. Enjoyed a glass alone and then paired with a roasted filet and creamy horseradish mashed potato’s, and it was perfect!

    A very well made wine that delights and deserves the high scores but missing a complexity component, at least at the moment.

    December 11, 2021 - Decanted for 1-2h, enjoyed with Peter. This really has evolved nicely into a great place over the past two years. Complex notes of oak, vanilla, cherry cordial, maybe some baking spices. The palate expression is silky smooth, red and black fruit, dark baking chocolate, still some tannins, acid and white pepper in the finish. Superb with grilled ribeye and mashed potatoes. 94/95

    November 13, 2021 - This clear and very dark purple wine was poured at home using the Coravin. The nose had an extremely strong strawberry jam bouquet to it and this was mixed with some toast and as well as some paprika. In the glass was a wine full of dark berries, cherries, a hint of vanilla as well as some smokiness at the end. Both the tannins and acidity were quite strong but held everything together very nicely. Finally, the wine had a very long finish to it.

    September 26, 2021 - 4 pairs of top notch wines; 9/26/2021-9/27/2021 (Tøyen, Oslo): Double decanted 3h+ before dinner.
    Nose: For me, completely dominated by creme de cassis, at least the first hour. Dont get me wrong, its lovely, but not really complex. Others around the table found more facets. I must agree with Neal Martin, writing that this is glossy in style. Its nothing wrong, the nose is just a tad too fruit dominated.
    Anyways, the palate was a different story: Full bodied, large- but round tannins (no hard edges), roses, black currant, gravel, vanilla and pencil shavings. Long finish.
    This also improved with time in the glass, extremely appealing at the end of dinner. Feels like its begging to be cellared further.
