    August 17, 2022 - My wine is not like other reviews. Maybe I didn't keep well. It looks too mature. It is medium bodied. The wine looks rosy colored. There is a some sediment in the bottle. It smells like raspberries and raisins. It tastes like cranberries, strawberries and apricots. The sweetness is high.

    July 30, 2022 - After 6 hours decanting still a bit mute on the nose.
    Cherry and menthol are great on the palate. Vibrant but elegant acidity. Tanins are velvety but could soften a bit more. So not sure whether this is really peak for this vintage or whether not a a few more years might make it even better. Very elegant. Of course not multi complex. Solid in the best sense of the word.

    After 3 days in the fridge the second half of the bottle was much better. Wonderful Morello cherry and first hints of porcini and sous bois. 93+ Indication that this still needs time for peak drinking or an even longer decant. Or 3 days in the fridge ;-)

    July 2, 2022 - 闻香有马厩和皮毛味,山楂一类红果香气,淡淡青草味,还有那种橡木桶充分融合的陈年香料感,入口酸度中高,单宁细腻,酒液咸,矿物感清晰,口中回甜,甘草味,山楂,话梅,马厩的味道,交织在一起。鲜活漂亮的果香,清晰的结构感,余韵红果,木质香气。不管它有多臭,一入口,确实上乘之作,不愧是亚洲之光。

    June 9, 2022 - D3 DipWSET STILL WINES - Prep with Lauren (home): A: Pale garnet
    N: Medium (+) nose of Brett, VA, roses, raspberry, dried cherry, smoke, leather, cedar, stinky mushroom
    P: roses, violet, mushroom, raspberry, dried cherry, smoke, dried tobacco, dry, medium (+) acidity, pronounced intensity, medium (+) chalky tannin, medium alcohol, long length
    C: Outstanding quality wine here with real finesse. Several of these notes could feel faulty but the judicious use of them in the wine has just added to the complexity. The length and intensity are ideal and it is complex.
