    March 23, 2018 - PnP, left for about 20 minutes in glass. Dark red, no sign of age. Nose of blackberry, bramble fruit, black forest chocolate, juniper, vanilla flower, dark plum skin, coffee bean and powdery tannins. Palate introduces sharper dark fruits (blackcurrant), cherry, earthy flavours, espresso and a light savoury spice (sage). Finnish is tannic and medium length, has an earthy, peaty finish you'd get from a great single malt. A really complex, deep and unusual flavour profile. This could go another five years, plenty of structure and development left. Delicious.

    September 20, 2017 - Finished my second and last bottle from this vintage. In 2015 was tight, too acidic and unimpressive. Two years later, the first immediate pour gave optimistic hints at what’s to come and after 30 minutes was very impressive, salty-sweet with just the right acidity and smooth tannin's.

    November 13, 2016 - Nez plutôt discret, mures, framboises, un peu d'épices.
    En bouche, beau fruits croquants, mi-bouche un peu confituré, tanins fondus, bonne longueur.

    July 13, 2016 - Decanted for an hour; minimal sediment. Lovely clear ruby color. Flowery spicy cherry and vanilla on the nose. A complex mix of medium-bodied red fruit on the palate with soft tannins and a good level of acids that extend the finish to well over a minute. What's not to like? This wine has it all and is drinkable by itself or with most foods. Great QPR at $33. Probably will be drinking well for another decade

    June 25, 2016 - muscular and complex flavors. The tannin is well refined and integrated. A beautiful wine with grilled portobello mushrooms with fine balsamic vinegar.
