    October 23, 2020 - Surprising amount of bottle variation, my previous bottle was lifeless and uninteresting. This is pretty juicy and pleasant. Cassis and some red fruit with a liquorice bitter edge. Belies its age and feels fairly youthful, no need to drink up I think this will last (depending upon the bottling).

    June 11, 2020 - Day long decant.
    Deep purple, full bodied wine
    Stewed fruit, leather notes, lingering licorice notes
    Smooth, mature fruits and tannin. Easy drinking. Not as bold as what it appeared like in the glass. As the wine got to ambient room temperature, it seemed to get a little thin on the finish. Taste follows the nose. A nice little bottle. I would drink up now. This will not go the long distance.

    Smoked an El Credito

    May 16, 2020 - Toller Wein, direkt volle Frucht, aber auch ätherische Einschläge mit Rosmarin und etwas Eukalyptus, immer noch satter Druck, geiles Tanin, schwarzes fruchtiges Konzentrat, ordentliche Adstringenz, natürlich bei mir perfekt gelagert. Der läuft noch ne Zeit aber ist jetzt voll da.
    Bester Citran ever, ein sehr großer kleiner Wein.

    April 27, 2020 - Confirming the good vintage level and reliable quality of the property this bottle offers a lot of drinking pleasure, combining smooth, well matured fruit, cedar, liquroice, pepper, cocoa and tea. Well structured, medium bodied, with a silky finish. Can drink over the coming 5 years.
