    November 7, 2021 - Crimson with no signs of age. A dozen bottles later I like this as much as the first bottle. This is still quite young and is going to age well for a decade or so, adding more fruit nuances and loosing a bit of its todays vigor. Unfortunately there is only one bottle left in my cellar. 5/11+/15+/9. 90+, -2028 in a cool cellar.

    October 26, 2021 - 89/90. PnP an 89 but will probably broaden. Has typical aromas of black olives, chalk, leather light spice, blackberries+kirsch. Its medium bodied solid , savoury and taut nicely fresh black and red fruits palate has very good depth and ends mediumish and a bit unknit. 14.5%. Excellent value at under 10 Euros. Lay down 2-5 years+. Needs 2/3 hours aeration.

    October 24, 2021 - Deep ruby.
    Black fruits, spice nose/palate.
    Medium bodied, well integrated tannins.
    Drinking well and very good value.
    Should continue to drink well for a couple of years.

    October 22, 2021 - PnP from 375, in the glass for 30-40min.

    Subtle red fruit, earth, leather from the nose, maybe some olives. Palate is rather vibrant with acid, slightly dry red fruit, a hint of spices like clove and nutmeg, and medium body. Finish has some drying tannins, dried fruit, black pepper, and is earthy in the “muddy leather” sense. Just a touch thin.

    An approachable, solid old-world wine for the new world folks like myself. I’m surprised this is only 5 years old, it’s drinking like it’s much older. Drying fruit, good secondary characters, and honestly drinking on the thin side. Maybe it’s just the 375?

    90 - 1 = 89 for being the slightest bit thin.

    Drink now. At peak or on the way down.

    October 13, 2021 - Perhaps bottle variation, perhaps waited too long to open, but rather thin and unremarkable, but decent.
