Decanted about one hour. Rather vibrant jammy dark fruit with a whiff of eucalyptus on the nose. Light to medium bodied, smooth and mellowed tannins, showing lifted dark, a bit jammy like fruit with discreet minty or eucalyptus notes. Gentle dusty bite on the finish. Quite youthful still, but I don´t see it improving anymore. It is rather elegant but not so complex. Overprized for 65€. 88-89.

A pretty strong lager with some heat coming through on the finish. Otherwise decent, balanced hoppy flavors, discreet bubbles, slight bitterness. Overall perhaps a tad too alcoholic.

Aromatic nose of ripe red and dark fruit, earth and spicy oak. Light to medium bodied with smooth tannins, delivering an array of flavors likewise the bouquet. Ripe and dried fruit, sous bois and some oak with a nice and lean dusty bite on the finish. A bit light and short but shows great balance. A beautiful quaffer.

Popped and poured. On the nose bright nettles, currant, some gooseberries. Medium bodied and dry, firm acidity, showing rather subtle flavors of nettles,currant and a hint of minerality. Overall decent balance and quaffable. A subdued version of Sauvignon Blanc. Interesting to try this varietal though. 86-87.

2012 Hahn GSM

Central Coast Red Rhone Blend more

Decanted for ca 1/2 hour. Vibrant nose of jammy cranberry and raspberry. Full bodied on the palate, quite smooth with gentle tannins, delivering surprisingly balanced fruit of cranberry and tart plums with firm acidic backbone and some heat on the finish. With more airtime it turned slightly more austere, perhaps from the oaky notes slowly emerging. Overall better than expected.

Popped and poured from a small bottle with screw cap. On the nose some currant aromas. Medium bodied, dry and smooth, delivering flavors of yellow stone fruit and increasing currant/gooseberry notes. Gentle and firm acidity. Funny that with more airtime the flavor profile clearly changed into flavors I often find in Sauvignon Blanc, like currant,nettles and even cat pee. Anyway a good quaffer.

Decanted ca 30 minutes. On the nose ripe dark and red berries with a whiff of oak. Medium bodied, smooth and gentle tannins, delivering tart red (lingon)berries,notes of cranberries with a discreet kiss of oak and quite firm acidity. Felt initially slightly austere but improved with a little airtime. Never had Baco Noir before but it reminds a bit of Pinot. A good quaffer.
