    November 29, 2020 - Positively surprised. My last, but best bottle so far. Actually beyond expected drinking window. Nose with very strong cassis, on palate less strong, but with continuing fruit, hint of leather, quite some raisin and wood. Tannins by now very well integrated.

    June 19, 2020 - 30+ months later: Still has good dark fruit, framed by leather, tobacco and a bit of dust. Also showing a not unpleasant hint of bitterness. Quite enjoyable over three nights.

    April 11, 2020 - Nose with strong cherry, resinous wood. On palate hardly any fruit, but very strong wood and resin. Still drinkable, but quite one dimensional.

    February 28, 2020 - This is my 5th bottle and i just think they get better with every bottle. Dark chocolate, vanilla and some herbs. Nice lenght and good complexity at a stellar price of about 23 €. Has some age-tones i really enjoyed. I wish i would have bought more when they where availible here. 90 P
