    February 18, 2021 - Decanted our half bottle for dinner at home of sweet and savory crepes. Deep purple. Cherry and hay on the nose. Full rich body with an astringent mouthfeel. Notes of blackberry, black cherry, sour cherry and quince. Long finish. Tight, perhaps still young.

    February 14, 2021 - Aromas and flavors of pencil and mushroom, with lively fruit notes of blackberry. The palate shows vibrant fruit, with medium body, balanced tannins, and assertive acidity.

    February 10, 2021 - Fresh, vibrant and juicy, with strong notes of tobacco, cedar, smoke, roasted fruits, espresso, thyme and currants. The wine is full-bodied and filled with ripe, crisp red berries, which come with a firm tannic grip that even with all this fruit, demands at least 4-5 more years to finish softening and rounding out. The wine is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot.

    January 31, 2021 - Decantes 2+ hours. Improved since my last bottle 2 years ago but it's still pretty young. I'm confident that it will get even better with more age. I will wait a few years with my next bottle. 93 pts. at the moment.

    January 6, 2021 - Intense and rather young nose with tobacco, cedar and black currents. Full bodied taste, a bit unbalanced with too much acidity, leaving an immature feeling. Too much wood? Might hopefully be polished of with time.
