    December 15, 2019 - Winefield's, Pre-sale tasting: A friendly bouquet, juicy, but misses after 23 years a certain complexity; still a lovely wine with a good aftertaste.

    April 7, 2015 - This was a bit fresher than the last bottle, more concentration and seemed younger. More power on the nose. A bit more floral, kirsch and smoked meat. Very good wine

    March 28, 2015 - Tar, still very fresh, sweet fruited, (been cellared in climate controlled conditions), fine grained tanins, no short finish here

  • Ebrim Likes this wine: 89 points

    January 31, 2015 - Smokey, blod, pepper, sour kirsch, leather, dried figgs, well intregated oak but the age is a little much for this bottle. Even if it has complexity the intensity is diminishing and the finish is quite short and fairly flat. Still has some charm. Suprisingly it gets alot better with decanting. Liquorice on the palate appears. I actually got more positive towards the end, this is a very good wine and it is charmfull even if it is lacks intensity

    December 20, 2013 - Was hoping to taste more fruit but this bottle was on its way out. Still very enjoyable but lost much of its younger self.
