    November 18, 2019 - Impressive wine. Opaque ruby color. In the nose very fresh and fruity, little reduction at first but incredibly balanced. On the palate also very fresh and silky, notes of amarena, blueberries and underwood. Drinks so well and will hold for more years.

    September 22, 2019 - 酒的保存相当好。
    酒瓶口的设计不方便用海马刀。
    一开始奔放,冲鼻子
    虽然不是肥婆歌海娜,也是火辣吉普赛女
    放在冰箱冷藏一小时后,酒精味消退很多。红色浆果,酸度明亮,单宁也比较细腻,让人感觉偏向清新不是很厚重。身材变苗条了

    May 19, 2019 - Dramatic wine with berries and spice. Well balanced on a large scale with acidity.long finish. Losing fruit after 3 hrs open. Drinks great now.

    May 19, 2017 - Creamy nose, ripe. Opaque color (darker than most Grenache). Big ripe wine, acid then tannin then alcoholic warmth without bitterness. Not much tertiary development or signs of age. New world style. Day 2: this actually improved on day 2! The alcohol seemed less so the balance improved. No trace of oxidation, this is one Grenache that is built to last! Score for day 2.
