Smooth silky, satiny mouthfeel with great length and balance on the mid palette and finish. Sorry nothing more other than I wish I had a case. In a GREAT drinking window now.

    April 18, 2019 - Dark purple almost black, extracted style. Delicious dark fruit with rustic edge, Christmas cake, sage, leather, mint, eucalyptus. Med plus weight in mouth, subtle fine grained tannins. Doesn’t seem old world to me but still quite enjoyable. Has at least 5 years left.

    April 6, 2019 - A great example of classy Old World red. Expressive nose of concentrated blueberry, mild oak, sweet vanilla, balsamic, plus some tobacco and licorice. Very pleasing. Medium plus bodied, just ripe, smooth. Long finish. Let it breathe just 10 min, then it's 95/100. Hours later 94/100.

    March 23, 2019 - Perfume, vanilla, mint bouquet. Cassis, lavender, violet on the palate. This is close to the burgundies tonight. Just the right amount of freshness and tannins to bring out the complex flowerbed flavours. Smooth, long, warm eucalyptus finish. This is good. I rank this highly. Drink now

    March 23, 2019 - Deep, savory, rich and seductive. A full and serious wine that could warm you on a cold, damp night. If you like serious wine where the dark and complex flavors slightly overshadow the fruit, this is one for you.

    February 17, 2019 - Flot mørkerød farve, nærmest Rubin. Duft af tobak og frisk læder. Smag af krydret peber, meget mørke bær og frugt - gode tanniner

    January 19, 2019 - Not a very complex wine but very full bodied with good balance. Restrained tannins with black and red fruit and a round mouthfeel.

    Went perfectly with a hearty beef stew on a cold snowy night. Also terrific with chocolate.

    November 16, 2018 - Dark ruby garnet. Juicy red cherry and blackberry fruit, chocolate, earthy, subdued tannins, spicy oak and some dill. Surprisingly well integrated and complex yet easy to to drink. Still young but already outstanding.
