    August 5, 2020 - All dark fruits on the nose: blackberry and black current, boysenberry, black cherry. Notes of coffee, bramble, black licorice. Fairly imposing tannins on the palate, and a little bit of heat, but the blunt flavor profile isn’t unattractive. Very nice wine, at peak for the next few years.

    January 14, 2020 - The cork was like butter and had to use a Ah-so to get it out cleanly, which had me worried. Once pulled, the nose seemed a bit off but the taste was right there. After about 20 minutes the nose was lush blackberries and the palate was smooth. Overall, happy with the wine but I do believe the cork had some affect, although very minimal. Actually surprised to see how good this was considering.

    February 9, 2018 - En fornøjelse - perfekt moden. Dybrød med tætte gardiner. Fortættet intens solbær duft. Vin i balance med lidt bid i af eg/vanilje. I munden røde bær med støvede jord nuancer og kaffe. Lang tæt eftersmag. En veltillavet Cabernet Sauvignon :-)

    January 20, 2018 - Found this kind of darkly monolithic and tannic—not much fruit or finish, though it definitely had some statuesque Cabernet flavors—possible it just needed more time in the glass. Not sure if it will evolve further; hold to 2020.
