April 3, 2021 - Cool blackberries. Nice seam of acidity. Chalky tannins still. A touch of light menthol. Cocoa and a touch of coffee. A nice savoury grip that cries out for food like good red Bordeaux always does. Good length. Medium to medium plus mouthfeel. A bit of bricking. To me this could go several years in bottle yet. Still lots of fruit. Mouthwatering. Very enjoyable.
February 27, 2021 - Classic aged Bordeaux aromas. Leather, wood smoke, coffee bean, and licorice. Cassis flavors through a fairly long finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Tremendous balance right now. I'd say it could live for another 5 years maybe, but why wait when it's so darned good at the current time.
February 20, 2021 - I found this wine soft, well structured and packed with smooth, ripe fruit. Nice minerality underneath an exuberant cassis-and-plums aroma.
There is no sediment in the bottle.
It tastes like forest floor, mineral, mushroom and stoniness.
January 4, 2021 - It is what I expected awesome. Tannins where mild would not wait much longer.
October 31, 2020 - Drinking well, deep red color, some muted fruit, moderate tannins, a touch of dust, overall good Old World balance.
September 23, 2020 - Retained some of its glossy, clean texture. Lovely floral notes, graphite, juniper and crushed blueberries. Really quite lovely. Showing maturity with broken down leaves on the nose and the palate has mellowed and knitted together really well. This may stay fresh for another 5 years, maybe more or may collapse and get a bit soupy - not sure. Either way, it’s drinking very well now with a long decant and has shown its quality.
August 3, 2020 - Ready to drink
July 31, 2020 - Dyp mørkerød farge. Fin modnet Bordeaux med fortsatt masse frukt av modne solbær og plommer sammen med deilig lær, lott tobakk og jordlige toner. Fine, avslipte tanniner med god friskhet. God Bordeaux i perfekt drikkevindu og topp match til grillet T-Bone!
March 12, 2020 - Lovely wine and good value . Nice balance and a delight to drink
February 20, 2020 - Probably an even better showing than last time - tasty medium weight BDX with nice earthy character and good currant and blackcherry fruit. Good length, good balance, very nice.
