    January 5, 2018 - This wine was drinking fabulously. Smooth, balanced, cherry, spice, long smokey finish. What's not to like, especially for the reasonable prices this goes off at. At 15 years no browning, musty, wet cardboard, dried oak, just sweet balanced fruit. VERY NICE.

    None of the early reviews were strong so clearly a wine that needs a little time to come in to its own. My last bottle :(

    October 14, 2015 - Served to a large dinner crowd. I not a fan of Trampranillo/Rioja and not a fan of 2003, so I did not expect much from this wine. I turned out to be completely wrong. Medium garnet with brick rim. Expressive and complex nose of dried fruit, sandal wood, cedar, very pleasant and complex, not a hint of oxidation. Very soft and tame on the palate but not tired, enough acidity to keep it fresh, no alcoholic heat. A really nice, well aged wined. Very popular on the table.

    December 27, 2014 - Sehr geiler Wein, in dem die nötige Reife sich dem Alkohol entgegenstellt und zu einem spannenden Film am hinteren Gaumen zusammen findet.
