  • Drinking well. The fruit hides the 15% abv. nicely. Cherry, minerally.

  • First time with this wine and it’s very impressive - top level QPR. Light in color. The nose is rocks, framboise and minerals galore. Light bodied with lovely depth - this is pretty special for the price. Lots of finishing tannin. This should rule in 10 years. Excited to see this evolve. Like a mix of burgundy and Barolo. You can taste the rocks. (94+?)

  • Prior bottle was nearly 16 months ago and this wine continues to evolve positively. Red and black cherry on the nose along with spices, mineral and floral qualities. Close to full bodied with red cherry upfront showing a good mix of acidity derived tart brightness and more rounded, open qualities. Mid-body brings in added density along with plum and tart red berry and strawberry. The contrast between the slightly darker middle and the brighter, more lively backside worked quite well. This density also works quite well with the backside tannins so they feel more balanced and better integrated with the fruit. Tartness (acidity), redfruit and minerals through the finish. Balance overall continues to improve and as it does so, the fruit gains is expressiveness. Should continue to improve along these lines over the next couple of years with several years beyond that at a high level. I'll plan to open my next bottle in Q1 2022.

  • Stor vin. Trenger tid. Ga assosiasjoner til noe imellom en kjølig, ung barbaresco og en fast Gevrey-Chambertin. Best på dag 2.

  • Nice bottle of wine with weight about half way between Pinot and Grenache and some of the characteristics of both. Really sings with barbecue chicken
