    January 25, 2019 - Klassischer CC mit Kirsch- und Beerenfrucht, Veilchen und Lakritz; am Gaumen mittlerer Körper, fein bis mittelkörniges, eher subtil unterlegendes Tannin, guter Abgang, guter Essensbegleiter.

    January 1, 2019 - Lost ground from last bottle. Very lean.

    October 13, 2018 - Good fruit concentration and precise delivery. Still going strong in 2018. Lovely mineral finish with atypically plush tannins. Quite posh for this level. Excellent VFM.
