    August 21, 2020 - Decanted and poured. Elegant wine. Plum color, red at the rim. Robust nose featuring black fruit, crushed rock, cedar, hint of coffee, slight left-bank vibe. Palate of blackberry, crushed rock, coffee, a slightly bitter graphite element mid palate, touch of toffee as it opened. Increasingly balanced and integrated with time in the decanter. Full bodied, approaching silky, mouth feel, hint of warmth on the finish. Very nice wine, although maybe not writing a special letter home about it.

    July 8, 2020 - Decanted over cocktails, about an hour. Remarkably generous nose of berries, sherry, dried herbs. On the palate, delicate yet expansive with savory berry cobbler, black tea, licorice, mocha, lightly charred earth. The balance, precision, and seamless blending of flavor is truly remarkable. Tannins are still plentiful, fine yet chewy. This is my second 100-point rating of this wine so I guess I don't see it getting any better if that were possible.

    March 18, 2020 - Wow. Big smooth and powerful, with obvious elegance and balance. Easy to drink. Some old world-style funk. Wonderful.

    November 2, 2019 - Kleur: Diep ondoordringbaar donkerrood met een dunne rand. Aroma / bouquet: Zeer expressief, aangenaam en stuivend aroma. 'Nieuwe-werelds' en zeer verleidelijk. Boordevol kersen- en donker fruit zoals bramen en zwarte bessen, mokka en bittere chocola. Smaak / Afdronk: Wow, een bek vol wijn, indrukwekkende concentratie in een ultieme balans en harmonie. Dik-sappig, boordevol prachtig gerijpte, droppig-zoetige tannines. Lactisch, romig zelfs. Retronasale indrukken van menthol en laurier. Boterzacht èn krachtig, een zeldzame combinatie. Algemeen / potentieel: Powerwijn, veel van alles maar in een ultieme harmonie. Ik heb me werkelijk afgevraagd wat ik aan deze wijn zou kunnen bekritiseren, maar ik kan niets noemen. En als er werkelijk niets over een wijn te klagen valt, dan verdient hij ook 100 Wimpunten. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 15 + Smaak / Afdronk: 20 + Algemeen / potentieel: 10 = 100/100

    Google Translate:

    Color: Deeply impenetrable dark red with a thin rim. Aroma / bouquet: Very expressive, pleasant and dusty aroma. Very 'New world-like' and so very tempting. Packed with cherry and dark fruit such as blackberries and black currants, mocha and bitter chocolate. Taste / Aftertaste: Wow, a mouth full of wine, impressive concentration in an ultimate balance and harmony. Thick-juicy, chock full of beautifully ripened, droppy-sweety tannins. Lactic, even creamy. Retronasal impressions of menthol and laurel. Butterly soft and powerful, a rare combination. General / potential: Power wine, lots of everything but in an ultimate harmony. I really wondered what I could criticize about this wine, but I can't mention anything. And if there really is nothing to complain about a wine, it also earns 100 WimPoints. 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 15 + Taste / Finish: 20 + General / potential: 10 = 100/100
