July 19, 2019 - Base Clio (maybe not as intense) + 10% syrah that you can really distinguish. Very easy drinking, fruit forward, maybe would like a bit of spiciness or acidity to give you a longer finish. $32.
March 29, 2019 - Eðalklúbbur, vínsmakk #3 vor 2019 (Bólstaðarhlíð 29): Mjög dökkt á litinn. Hangikjöt, reykur, bláber og vanilla í nefi. Einnig rósmarín. Gras/taða eftir þyrlun.

September 8, 2018 - Enjoyed Don Sangster after golf September 2018
July 15, 2018 - 45 minute decant. Deep purple. Nose of soy, cherry, dark plum and sweet nail polish. Big full flavors of plum, prunes and stewed blueberry with notes of tobacco, bourbon and licorice. Medium tannins with high acidity. A bit of an acidic bite but I suspect I opened this a year or two early. Long dry finish. Very nice and pretty great QPR. About 91 now, likely better in a year.
April 30, 2018 - Its very powerful, yet smooth and soft, with a long finish. A great wine with food, or without.
April 8, 2018 - Excellent after 2 hours decanting
March 10, 2018 - Online food pairing recommendations for Monastrell (this wine has 60%) speak to pork and robust spice-ful foods from the Spanish countryside. But what strikes me to be a fit, and I wish I had some to try with it, is venison. The reasoning is, this is the only wine I’ve ever tasted that connotes a semblance of fat. Not roundness, not juiciness or glycerin, but fat. The tannins and acid keep all in balance and allow the flavors of dark berries dusted with chocolate and metal to introduce themselves.
