    October 5, 2019 - PnP, 55F. Deep, dark red. Cassis and some blackberry on nose. Rough tannins dominate early impression. Probably better with some breathing and warming - will see.
    Decanted 60 min: Really pleasant nose of black fruit, cassis, pepper. Tannins now tamed and hold wine together nicely; some mild fruit on pallet, nice finish. Nice. Good with meatloaf.

    June 2, 2019 - Gained a lot of complexity and depth! Drink now though, it's getting a hint of Madiera that says to me it's on the way down.

    September 9, 2018 - Plum and cassis on nose. Tannins a bit rough but good fruit, pepper, spice. Medium weight, nice finish.

    November 8, 2017 - Den Blinde Hane #10 (Hos Malene&Lars): Very, very dark red, red rim, 6.5. Spicy peculiar bouquet, not able to characterize. Spicy palate, a bit aggressive tannins. Drink now-onwards. Jens-Peter. Not the usual stuff but very interesting still.
