    April 2, 2020 - This nero d’avocat/frappato blend has the aroma and flavor profile of a natural wine, and is drinking better than in 2018 when I gave it an 87, or perhaps it is that I appreciate this type of wine more today. This wine is light on its feet but has real character with fermented (indigenous yeasts) of red fruit aromas and flavors including strawberry, raspberry, and cherry offset by subtle earthiness. Lively in the mouth, it refreshing and interesting with well balanced medium acidity and fine, dusty tannins, and a good finish. I am glad I still have 3 bottles.

    March 13, 2020 - Friske røde bær, god syre, litt støvete tanniner. Fyldigheten er på den lettere siden. Tross 12,5 % er alkoholen litt fremtredende og forringer en ellers fin balanse noe. Enkel+ vin, god til bolognese. Matvin mer enn peiskos. Med luft blir den litt tynn bringebærsaft.
