    [December, 2012]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 54 Euro in September, 2012.

    [January, 2013]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 58,50 Euro in October, 2012.

    [March, 2014]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 60 Euro in October, 2012.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5 all times.  My notes state a strong winey profile that most probably is not to everybody's liking - but I like it...

    • Nose
      Pretty complex. Apparently me only slowly. First, a pleasant aromatic smoke. Then comes the bourbon barrel with a nice sweetness. The caramel is however slightly salty due to the smoke. For a short flash a bright sweet fruit - could be raspberry. The red wine finish shows up last, but all the more clearly with dark fruit jam and some leather.
    • Taste
      Creamy mouthfeel. Distinct wine-typical acidity. Spicy, with oak and leather. Some smoke. Slowly gets sweeter and more fruity, but this time more towards orange.
    • Finish
      Long. Acidic to leather.
