    June 7, 2020 - Beautiful wine. Drinking really well now. Lots of lovely dark fruit, some chocolate and coffee, a steak of acidity and lovely dusty tannins. My kind of wine in a great place now!

    April 15, 2020 - This wine delivers for the price. Deep garnet in color it shows dark blue fruits on the nose with a hint of flint and wet stone. The tannins are medium but the acidity is there and makes it a vivacious quaff. Notes of dark cherry and prunes with a cedar and licorice finish. Drinking really well now.

    January 12, 2020 - Difficile pour moi de noter ce type de vin, tant au fil des années mon gout personnel s'en éloigne; il symbolise même l'archétype du vin calibré, markété, travaillé pour assoir un style séducteur et racoleur, et qui du coup manque d'âme et d'authenticité.
    Passé le nez passablement envahi par les effluves boisées (beaucoup de fûts neufs, et des traces de fûts américains), le fruit est mûr et solaire, toutefois contrebalancé par une fraicheur plus florale. Le tempranillo local apporte sa finesse, la texture se veut soyeuse, mais que diable le bois se montre envahissant (sans être asséchant pour autant). Etrangement, ce vin m'a semblé passablement chargé (en quoi, ça je ne sais pas...), lui otant toute digestibilité et le rendant harassant malgré sa séduction avouée -un comble-.
    On ne peut pas faire meilleur exemple des notes stupéfiantes que peuvent recevoir certains vins (95 par RP)

    July 10, 2019 - Deep ruby in color presenting aromas of mixed red/black fruits, liquorice, vanilla and cedar. On the palate; flavors of red/black cherry, cranberry, red currant and prune are accompanied with muted notes of baking spice, cocoa and cedar. Beautifully balanced; bright fruit is equalized with energetic acidity providing excellent lift and volume. Rewards with long dry evenly distributed finish. Excellent RdD!

    Lite sötfruktig, eukalyptus?, mint?, fatat, körsbär, kaffe, rostat, smörkola, svarta vinbär

    Torrt, strävt, tanninrik, vaniljig, lite alkoholvarm

    Ett väldigt gott vin som alltid levererar.

    November 20, 2018 - Tobacco, dill, cedar, vanilla. Dark blackberry. A touch meaty, almost a really light version of “Cayuse Funk”
