    December 5, 2019 - I know this wasn't a great idea, but I decanted and started to drink only 30 minutes later. No funk, lots of acid, little fruit, just all wrong for a Musar. A couple of hours later it had sorted itself out a bit, but still not great.

    This really needs years more in the bottle or MANY hours of decant.

    November 3, 2019 - Flott, primær frukt igjen enda som tilsier at også denne klarer seg i kjelleren i mange år enda.

    October 18, 2019 - (Very drink cork). Brick red; reeks of VA, unsettled; fresher, cleaner palate yet piquant. Plummy fruit lurks but ultimately this is a long way from pristine.

    September 29, 2019 - Aromatic and straight. Not that much bret- and barnyard-aromatic as expected. Ripe black fruits, sourcherry, tabacco. Good accidity, well balanced. Great effort!

    September 15, 2019 - On opening a typical Musar nose but lacking the funk you expect. This was a much softer wine than last time. Typical Musar palate; cherries, strawberries a bit of spice. Some tasted blind and plumped for a left bank Bordeaux.
