    December 25, 2020 - Was a touch hot and sour, per the other notes, but after sitting for 3hrs uncorked (not decanted) it mellowed into something far more interesting, balanced, expansive and lively. Glad I have more.

    October 19, 2020 - Deep ruby colour
    Berry compote aromas with vanilla notes.
    Sour cherry, a bit tart on initial taste, which softens with food
    Very Berry
    The wine exhibits all of its origins, like an unfortified dry Port.
    Lovely rounded fruit finish

    May 17, 2020 - I was expecting more, much more. This is a lot of wine but all one-dimensional. A nice wine but not worth the 45 euro's I paid. 10-12 euro's and I would be happy.
    ...looking back I see that I paid 65!! Pure scan and not worth it.

    May 16, 2020 - I was exepwcring more. Felt a bit hot and maybe slightly unbalanced. Tannins we’re firm but integrated. A hint of smoke and then also deep dark berries. At approximately $90 definitely not a value and not sure I would buy again.

    April 2, 2019 - Ripe, modern style reminiscent of CA Cabernet in structure but with the distinctive aromas and palate of indigenous port varietals. Rich, well integrated and supple tannins.
