June 29, 2020 - Similar notes to my March 20 review. No rush to drink this. It has a long life ahead.
May 31, 2020 - Nose: all dark fruits, vanilla, leather and lots of coffee. Mouth: dark fruits, excellent acidity, medium body, medium length, balanced and so much better than a couple of years ago. At peak, drink now. 93 pt.
April 25, 2020 - Bra tanniner, körsbär, läder, sötlakrits, örter, lite vanilj. Klara mognadstoner i färgen. Väl balanserat.
March 23, 2020 - Decanted for two hours. Blackberries, plums, leather, and mocha on the nose and palate. This wine is medium-bodied and well balanced, with a medium finish. Very Bordeaux like. Drinking well currently.
December 24, 2019 - A deep colour; rich, brambly fruit with spice and oak. Still a vigorous wine and will probably keep well although it is in fact very attractive now. A fine example.
December 6, 2019 - Got to say, my review is a blend of a number of comments found below — this trully feels like a mini-Ornellaia as it has a thick/dense long lasting chocolaty, spicy and smoked fruits aromas. Drank over two days, I would have seen this one go for another 5 minimum as the wine did not show any sign of ageing. At $49 back in the days, should have bought a case, now at $70 CAD, different story altough I’ll still get my hands on 1-2 magnum of 2016 to see how well it holds in the long run. Had the 2015 Argentiera about a month ago which was slightly better IMO than the Serre only for the lesser smoked fruits flavor. Very well done here!! Cheers!
August 12, 2019 - Surprisingly good wine, feels like a mini Ornellaia, now in a great drinking window. Open from the start, yet becomes richer with some air. Has a round feel, slight chocolatey note, from the Merlot, yet still some tension, light structure, and is not overdone. Finish is not very long though, and whilst it gained a little with some air, would not decant too much, keep bottle opened too long.
August 4, 2019 - A dark colour; full, concentrated blackcurrant/blackberry fruit which tastes slightly burnt. This seems reasonably mature, but the finish is a bit restrained. May yet improve a little.
July 19, 2019 - A deep colour, garnet/brown; this is drinking very well now, mature but not old, with rich, slightly spicy plum/blackberry fruit and well integrated oak. A very good second wine.
June 21, 2019 - I expected more. If this wine were a person, the adjective would be ‘vapid.’
