The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, raspberry, black currant (cassis), forest floor, mushroom, light toast, lead pencil and hazelnut. On the palate even better, showing more potential. Excellent wine, best bottle so far, next in two years

This is not a rose, rather a red champagne. Deep red color. Odd nose at first, after 30 minutes opening up. Rose petals, raspberry and iodic, almost saline notes. On the palate, very strong minerality, faint leather, a little mint. Smoothing Little bit after 90 min, still freaky, drinking Nicely while decorating the Christmas tree. Next bottle in three years

Better than expected. A great wine indeed. Potential for another 15 to 20 years. The wine is crimson colored but very dense. legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like a Burgundy inspired raspberry, cherry, forest floor, mushroom blend, light toast and clove. The body is medium/full. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.Will let the other bottles sleep for another 3 years.

Wonderful wine, NoW at Peak. Dark golden, almost oily velocity. Interesting nose, not the standard riesling Aromas but more Bordeaux Style. After 3 min in the Glass riesling Aroma develops.

On the palate a Great cobination of residual sugar, acidity and beginning Tertiary notes. Last bottle will wait another 5 years.

One Glass left for tomorrow.

The wine looks yellow gold colored. The legs are slow. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like fig, orange, gooseberry, mushroom, petrol, petrol, mineral, forest floor. The body is full. The wine has oily texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has medium acidity.

Amazing fruit in the nose and on the palate. Now on a plateau, should remain strong for many years to come.

very pure cherry nose, dark for a pinot, on the palate pure magic with cherry, a hint of strawberry, accompanied slow cooked and smoked spare ribs very well. next to 2008 probably the best Isabelle, haven't tasted 10 so far which comes highly recommended

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

9/27/2013 - jbroich Likes this wine: 100 points

... Perfect wine to forget the Riesling Jihadists and their moronic reaction on vintage criticism.

This wine will surely develop nicely over the next 40+ years. Dark, opaque color. Intense nose of plums, mulberries, black cherry, jasmine and a whiff of licorice. 150 seconds finish. Spectacular on the palate, almost identical to bouquet but with a touch of cedar. Well structured, apparently high alcohol which you do not taste, far from being hot. Absolutely phantastic. got to buy much more

Dark ruby, almost black. blueberry and blackberry nose, with the earthy typical green streak. Still tanic on the palate but wonderful blackberry, spices and mineralic notes. Much better on day 2. The green streak had faded, the tannic tone molten away. Phantastic wine with at least 10 years of potential.

Wonderful wine, fabulous nose of roses, cherry and spices, very smooth and elegant on the palate, remarkable and rather surprisingly slutty strawberry finish, has developed considerably, looking forward to 5+ yeasrs. hope that WA continues to underrate this wine and the vintner.

Opaque ruby color. Incense, cedar and blueberry nose. On the palate almost meaty, with strong laurel, cedar and blueberry and meat. Gorgeous wine developed nicely over 10 hours. Needs probably another 5-8 years to maturity. With 3 hours in the decanter already great, can ultimately become 98-100.

Wonderful wine. Drank at Prange memorial barbecue.. Light red fading at the rim. Smells like a combination of blackberries, rasperries, cedar a little bit of licorice. On the palate surprisingly strong not alcoholic, red berries and intense minerality. long finish with rasperries. We drank 5 bottles and all of them were superb. Will drink the remaining cases over the next 5 to 10 years.

pomegranade colour starting to fade on the rim, astonishingly broad glycerin windows. Wild strawberry nose, with a litte bit of white pepper and a hint of cinnamon. Changed into a more subdued cherry on day two. On the palate this wine was pure velvet not jammy, wild strawberry mixed with dark cherry and surprisingly also plum. Aging potential 15y plus

Before I opened the bottle I was concerned that the was beyond peak. However, the wine was sublime, light red, fading at the rim. Very etheral nose, cherry, hints of blueberry. On the palate very intense, again cherry and blueberry, complex pepper notes. A toast to my late father who left me a great collection of aged italian and french treasures.
