    January 9, 2022 - Just starting to flash its brilliance, at least based on this pop and pour encounter. Compact and classy, with pyrazine and dark berry flavors and some mocha. Good lift. Complex floral aspects emerge in the long finish.

    December 25, 2021 - Acquired on release and perfect storage with no movement of wine past surface of cork. Dark purple. After a four hour decant this was showy on the nose. Opulent, like a very young California Cabernet. Some elegance and a lot of fruit, but this wasn’t showing much length or complexity. Not much better on day two. A bit of an awkward stage, but I am bit worried about how this might show in ten years. Could come together or be a mess.

    November 10, 2021 - Five wine friends and two guests (Restaurant Olivijn (Michelin star) Haarlem, The Netherlands): Three times decanted (the evening before, the morning before the tasting and at the tasting), black colour, black fruit, graphite, new wood, vanilla, super concentration, all the components for a memorable future, but at the moment the wine is still searching for its perfect line from start to finish; I will wait!!
