  • Purchased on release and stored in my passive cellar. Which might appear to make a difference, based upon other notes, as perhaps the fact that it has not been in a high end refrigerator for the last 13 years is why it is open right now out of my old school cellar. Great dark fruit, lovely balance, tertiary notes developing. Still dark red with a large amount of time left. Really long and clean on the savory finish. Double decanted. Not anywhere near peak, this wine will be spectacular at peak I believe, score adjusted up for future potential.

  • See also notes from 5.03.2017. This is in its sweet spot now. If one can say so, for this tannic monster. The problem here is the overextraction and that the fruit is gone when the tannins only begin to melt away. With food okay. 5/13/15/8 -2023

  • Mørke bær - blåbær og kirsebær, litt parfyme som nesten går mot maling. Med litt luft overtar skogbunn og andre modningsaromer og frukten forsvinner i bakgrunnen. Fløyelsemyk i munnen. Mer søtlig og intens frukt i munnen, kanskje jordbær og bringebær. Munnfølelsen er ganske ungdommelig på dette tidpsunktet, tross fjorten år, så det er mye å lagre på her. Fine tanniner i ettersmaken, som har et lite snev av jord og modning. Blir sittende lenge på en subtil måte.

  • Alcohol level illegible. Good long cork with no wine penetration. Very dark colour, especially for Pinot; somewhat cloudy.
    The nose is rich but also very lively with red berries and some raspberry in evidence. The mouth is in the same vein, with an unusual combination of richness and liveliness; the oak is perceptible at times, but it is never overwhelming. Unrecognisable from my last tasting (December 2016), and so much better now. There is still more to come in my view.
    This is still in a muscular style that is not my favourite, but there is no doubt that the execution is very successful.

  • Finally cracked open this bottle that was tapped by Coravin 4-5 times over the last 4 years and overall this has been getting better and better with time. On the nose, red fruit with strawberry components. Pretty advanced nose with a touch of brett.. In the mouth spicy red fruit, iron, and great acidity. Still youthful but this opened up beautifully after about 2 hours decant. Great now but there's probably a lot more around the corner if you wait it out. 92-93p
