    September 21, 2019 - Incense, smoke, licorice, wet earth and ripe. dark cherries are all over the place here. The wine is ripe, fleshy and round with a silky, polished, espresso, vanilla and plum finish. Give it a few years for the oak to integrate and this will a very nice treat.

    February 25, 2019 - Amsterdam UGCB Tasting and Winemakers' Dinner (Beurs van Berlage / Café De Klepel): The nose is quite closed, but the palate is showing well, with lovely fruit and freshness, tension and balance.
