One of my favorite whites. Clean, crisp, not overly tart. Nice gentle fruit flavors. Good to pair with fish or soft cheese. — 5 days ago

Great for its age. — 19 days ago
Opened up after 2.5-3hrs. It’s quite young. Tart blackberry, and blueberry, hints of black cherry. Medium leather, graphite pencil, cocoa notes. Very tight tannins. Requires further maturing within the bottle to unleash the dark fruit notes and express the leathery earth quality. Score of 9 for future potential. 8.6 now, due to the restrained notes and restrictively tight tannin. — a month ago
Drank 10\20\20. Nice with Lamb Kebabs.
Reidel vs Zalto Bordeaux glass tasting.
Reidel Vinum (approx $15\stem)
Graphite, black fruit, and earthy scents. Plum, black cherry, and earth flavors are backed by medium tannins. More red and black cherry, with a bit of oak on the finish.
3\21\8\4\3 +50 =89 pts.
Zalto Bordeaux Glass (approx $60\stem)
Nose a bit more floral, with violets, plum, and graphite. Plums, blackcherry, red cherry, oak, and earth on the palate. Seems to have a bit more lift. Finish similar to the Reidel.
3\21\8\4\3+50 = 89 pts.
Same score, but perhaps slightly preferable from the Zalto, and easier to pick out individual notes. Reidel seems a bit heavier. This wine was better a couple of years ago, and seemed to fade a bit after a couple of hours as well. Drink now. — a month ago
