    August 8, 2020 - I was a bit apprehensive about opening this wine as a bottle I opened six months ago was too young and harsh for my tastes. However this time I decanted for three hours and the difference was immediately apparent. The wine was much softer on the palate this time.. blackberry, strawberry and chocolate, beautiful mouth feel, medium finish.

    July 26, 2020 - Listen to previous reports and aerate for 2-3 hours. Regardless, simply delicious directly on first pour and throughout night. Deep kirsch, blackberry, cedar and surprisingly high green pepper but so good. Enjoy, cheers.

    July 11, 2020 - This wine has been my absolute favorite for a long time now.

    The nose:
    Leather, spices, chocolate, leaves, Strawberry, Blackberry, a little baked apple and spearmint.
    There is very old, but fresh cellar-smell at the end, which I find delicious, for this type of wine.

    The palate:
    Spices, chocolate, oak, blackberry, plum, a little strawberry at the end.

    The color is light red/light brown.
    Acidity is medium+
    Body is medium+
    Tannins are medium+

    Decant this at least for 2 hours, maybe even 3 hours before drinking. I do find that it's developing some more secondary notes now, than be the previous bottles
    I'm not going to score this, because they hasn't changed from my perspective

    Still beautiful!

    June 20, 2020 - I like it. Medium bodied and flora note. With hint of herb and spice without the overwhelming oak. High tannis but mellow down after 1 hour. Matched with the medium acidity the balance is very much enjoyable. Kinda remind me of GSM. 👍

    May 15, 2020 - 4 hour decant. Bouquet exploded with scents of Asian spices, cinnamon, clove and star anise. Reminded me of a baby version of Ch Rayas. On the palate the tannins were well integrated and incredibly delicious finish that lasted well over 45 seconds. Great to drink now or hold for another 10-12 years. Highly recommended.
