    January 21, 2018 - Birth Year - Themed wine dinner: 1 hour decant, followed for 3 hours.
    Another 'workhorse' wine.. solid, tasty, just a really well made wine, with excellent depth. Overshadowed a little but man it's tasty.
    Day 2 - intoxicating nose. WOW. just amazing.

    September 23, 2015 - Excellent cork, colour is red and rim is small. At nose it gives off spice like pepper, and also a bit of chocolate. On palate the wine is a bit alcoholic, no tannin left, tastes spicy and a bit green, fruit is not significant, acidity is obvious. Finish is rather short. This wine should have passed its peak and should be drunk as soon as possible.

    July 21, 2013 - 0.375 L bottle, late Jul 2013: not decanted; bright rubin red color; over the consuming time aromas and flavors constantly developed and improved: 20 min. after opening chocolate and milk coffee plus cherry and cassis could be detected, eventually licorice, truffle, caraway seed and cocos added in; light body; polished texture; short finish.

    This wine is fully developed and over its peak. Drink your bottles in the next five years.

    February 11, 2013 - DRC Tasting Group: Le Pin (Cafe Veloce): Lots of barrel spice and weedy characteristics on the nose. Rich, velvety body wrapped in chocolate. Moderately structured, the wine finished with fine tannins and a bit of tartness (acids?).
