    April 17, 2021 - In the latter stages of its drinking window, it is still enjoyable but really needs to be consumed sooner rather than later.

    June 7, 2020 - Appearence medium garnet due to aging. Flavour of black plum and tertiary notes of leather. My last bottle :-) Drinking window is closing.

    April 19, 2019 - Flott vin til lammestek, holder koken etter 21 år, men må dekanteres et par runder. Dette er en matvin.

    January 13, 2019 - It is starting to show slight oxidative notes of almonds and walnuts, on the nose and the palate. Otherwise profile resembles previous notes. Drink now.
