What a surprise! This hadn’t moves since release. Perfect cork, perfect night, almost perfect wine.

This could be from any of the following regions: Paso Robles, Rioja, Barossa, Mendoza, or Napa Valley. This is an abomination, void of terroir, void of individuality. This is all barrel with no acid. This is a wine-shake

Well the style certainly has not changed much from then to now.

I thought it was an old CdP tasted blind, lots of sweetness and glycerin with plum and berry fruits. Expected more meaty notes and spice.

Purple-red, noticably low viscosity on the swirl; large, rich round peppery with high alcohol on the nose; savoury, high acid, lightly meaty and a very pleasant whole-palate mouth-feel with medium finish. 2010 vintage; I had to sample: Rest of bottles will lay in cellar 5-10 years or so.

Inte så kraftig. Lagom kropp, lagom Tanin subtilt fruktigt. Inte värt priset kanske

6/19. Ok. A medium body wine not earthy.
