    January 17, 2021 - Short notes - the nose showed touches of smoke floating around dark berries, cherries, spice and earth. The palate was decently structure LD, with fine firm tannins and a bright steak of acidity running through notes of black cherries and dark berries, leading into a finish off earth and smoky spice. A bit of chew from tannins at the end gave this a bit of bite. Still too young, but this is pretty good, and will get better

    August 17, 2020 - Even after 2 hours in decanter, the wine was still holding back. Good, with notions of very good, but it's going to need another year or two of rest, perhaps more. Good+ balance, vg purity and extra marks for the graceful finish. Solid value. recommended+

    May 9, 2020 - Juicy, good acid, light in color and fruits, slight minerality. Just my thing. 4 stars for the sales price (approx 150.974kr (€20) in denmark). rating conservatively.

    May 1, 2020 - Lett stikkende heimevin rett etter åpning . Rognebær . Fast lett frukt. Gode tanniner og syre. Sitter lenge i munnen . Åpner opp med aroma av rips, einer. Som en litt grov burgunder . Klarte ikke å matche lasagne. Flott vin som balanser natuvinpreget på en god måte.
