    May 21, 2020 - A few minutes in the glass; strawberries and mint are the main components on the nose, and something else that I’ve never tasted before so I can’t really explain it. Such an interesting and different wine. It’s rather unique and wild but at the same time elegant. Starts of with more power than I expected on the palate. Fruit driven but not jammy, still very much alive and serves a long and medium dry finish. Tannins are smooth and there’s no alcohol to notice. This was an absolute outstanding surprise of a wine that I thought was over the top. It might have been even more lively some years ago, but this was far from too old. Different in the best meaning of the word

    November 29, 2019 - Dinner with friends: Blind. Vry good red berry fruit, some jam, elegant, raspberries; wonderful finish, some umami, lacks some punch.

    July 23, 2016 - Last bottle. And I must say--it was super! Lovely, fairly clear red. Alluring aromas. Great mouthfeel. Good lush fruit balanced with nice acidity and integrated tannins. Must rush to buy the current release, which is incredibly at the same price point as this one from seven years ago. Good to drink with or without food, and lasted very well into the second day.
