100 points
Over the last few years, I have been drinking a lot of wines and not writing reviews. Because, well, it takes time. I have had some excellent wines from Quilceda Creek, Robert Craig, Kongsgaard, Saxum and other international wines that I do not want to look up in order to spell correctly. But, I must take a moment to write a note about this wine because I get to use the word sublime. The first few swallows were not optimal. A little funky... good, but not incredible. I thought, hmmm why am I saving these? Well, after about 15 minutes... the answer became clear. The bottle warmed slightly, from cellar temperature, a little breathing took place and this became the best wine I have had in a couple of years. A reminder of wonder for this jaded wine drinker. Thank you Elaine and Manfred Krankl.

So not a controlled environment. However, I have had a few really memorable wine experiences and this was one of them. I just loved it. Thank you for commenting.

IF that is two minutes... fine, but it will taste better to wait at least 15 minutes. Wait more than hour? Well, I am not that patient. But, it would probably be wonderful even 24 hours later. Unopened, In proper storage, I think this wine will keep just about forever. But, probably best in the next 20 years.
