Funky nose. Super silky texture. Lush dried red and blue fruit. Cocoa and coffee. Great acid and tannin integration.

Beautiful garnet color. Elegant hints of dark fruit, leather and cedar on the nose. Nicely integrated tastes of currants, black plums and a hint of licorice. The acidity is spot on creating a mouthwatering wine. The tannins are still a little evident and the finish shows signs of graphite and a little bit of bell pepper.

ripe black currant taste, spicy oak and plenty of structure with sweetness and acidity. Balanced fruitiness with old fashioned wine.

What could be better than this wine, on a rooftop in Amsterdam with the best friends and a bright sunshine. Nose of black currant, a wooden touch and a sanguine, salty touch too. Superb acidity and nice layers of fruits. Vivid tannins that shows a bright future for this wine. Quality time.

2010 vintage opened April 2017. Awesome bouquet. High notes of raspberries and anise. But the intensity of nose doesn't reflect the profile of liquid behind it. No fruit at all on the palate. It's all held together by a silky body of tannins balanced by a little bit of tartness. Smooth drinking, but I suspect this wine has begun to fade.
