    June 5, 2021 - Soft tannins, more richness, nice acid, leather, forest floor, dried fruit but not raisiny. Vey good and possibly near peak
    Still good after several hours open

  • Loekkeboe Likes this wine: 90 points

    April 11, 2021 - Very nice. Smooth and mature, can be kept for some years. Really good at the price.

    March 6, 2021 - On opening there is this intense aroma, not unpleasant just different, that goes away after 20 minutes in the glass.

    Then

    Nose med- intensity: floral, meaty, smoky, slight Red fruit, cherry? , mint,

    Palate: meatiness comes through, then good fruit and, med tannin. Med pleasant length.

    Overall nice. More than acceptable wine, good mature wine for the price. Still some tanin and based on how long it drank for in the glass suggest no rush to drink up.

    (I didn’t decant this time. Next time I will experiment to give it some breathing time in bottle to see if we get a better expression of fruit.)

    September 13, 2019 - This has a decade before tertiaries. Agressive tannins upon popping. Had to decant for 3 hours. It was delicious but fairly primary and some nicely integrated oak. It has a good amount of fruit, so this should age nicely. If you have more, keep it at least 5 years. Time will reward. If you like your wine young, buy malbec. And whoever screw me with the 2018 drink by date, FU!
