    June 2, 2018 - Tasting with some wine geeks (@Private location, Frankfurt): Glass: Gabriel Standard
    About 5h in decanter. Deep, tawny color. Intense and complex nose with lots of tar, ripe cherries, herbs de provence and Garique. Beautiful perfume!
    Dry, bold and concentrated on the palate. Lots of plum, dried fruit, rosemary, thyme and marjoram. I felt like standing in my own herb garden.. Good acidity to keep it rather fresh. Great tannin structure. Good balance. Long and lingering, a bit hot on the late palate. Unfortunately, this wine was a little bit lost this evening side by side with the great racy Rieslings. But nevertheless a wonderful and remarkable wine at its peak. 93

    February 9, 2018 - Cork fell to pieces, brick red color, horrible smell. This was corked. What a shame because this wine had great reviews on CT.

    December 25, 2016 - Similar notes to last time though we did not have time to decant. Powerful strawberry kirsch with a long finish of mocha, saline and earth. Was superb with our Chinese style roast Christmas goose.

    December 22, 2016 - I rarely score wines this high but it was well deserved. A lot of complexity ranging strawberries, dark fruit, beef, earth, black olive and truffle. Very long finish and exceptionally smooth. Drinking well now.

    May 2, 2016 - A (perhaps) pretty little Syrah underneath huge sheets of mocha, roast, and coffee, coffee, coffee.

    I'm not really sure how to rate this as a wine. More than any other wine I've ever had, any rating would not reflect how I really feel about the wine. On the one hand, it's not what I want when I want a Syrah. It's not even what I want when I want a *wine*.

    On the other hand, it's a pretty singular experience, that's for sure. And I'd do it again.
