September 8, 2019 - Love this wine
August 29, 2019 - Fun stuff. Vanilla and dark fruit. Big bodied. Look forward to trying another bottle in a couple of years.
July 18, 2019 - This was better integrated than a bottle drunk a year ago, with the high alcohol not showing through the intense purple and black fruit, with slight jamminess and noticeable vanilla on the medium to long finish. Hedonism in a bottle for $40 - a very good to excellent value.
June 2, 2019 - Leather and concrete, with plums and green peppers, with a bit of the aroma of a sweaty horse on a summer day. Pairs well with spicy meat dishes.
May 29, 2019 - Vantar sýru, of mikið brennd eik, iðnaðarvín.
May 15, 2019 - Buy. Yeah it's a bit circus weird for the blend which confuses people like an elephant driving around in a little side show car but its awesome. Tonnes of vanilla smacking luxury velvet.
May 12, 2019 - Drank over 2 nights. As good or better on night 2. Dark black color. Sweet cherry, tobacco, vanilla (from oak - not overbearing) and blackberry on nose. On palate, blackberry, black licorice (fruit primary) flavor profile. Full body, medium acidity and medium+ tannins. Very long finish. Delicious. 92-93+ (93 on night two score above reflects night one).
Would buy again.
March 14, 2019 - a bit too alcoholic for my taste
January 11, 2019 - As my previous note, a spectacular wine.
Decanted - some crusty sediment.
NOTE: You must give this plenty of air. It's good initially, and blossoms wonderfully in the glass after an hour or so....
BUT - give it SEVERAL HOURS and, WOW.......you will see its full potential
December 25, 2018 - No detailed notes. Very typical and classic Clio
