Not bad, just very closed. A little more open the second day. I was very excited to try this so was disappointed. I'll wait a few years to try the 2010.

Not as exciting as the last bottle, has mellowed, would drink now if you have any.

This was just okay and a disappointment compared to previous vintages. Good color, not much nose, short finish, seems disjointed. Not terrible and it is drinkable but won't seek out more.

Drinking nicely, might be just the slightest bit flabby so I wouldn't hold further, JMO

Bottle #1/3. Improved quite a bit after being open for 2 days, quite tasty.

Nice acidity and minerality with some green apple zing. Neither buttery nor oaky.

Fruity but not too complex, alcohol noticeable. I think overscored by WS. Decently good but not great.

I could sense no smoke taint. Muted fruit, some stone. I think it could use some more time.

Had to crack the small btl. This was great. Hard to believe it can get better with time -- I can't wait!

Good, but overall disappointing. I was expecting to be wowed and ended up underimpressed. Would have been quite happy at $18, but alas....

Finally made it through the wait for the mailing list. Popped and poured just off the UPS truck. Closed and tannic at first but now mellow and warm with boysenberry and a hint of chocolate. Glad I have more.

New to Alsatian wine so take this with a "grain of salt." Beautiful golden color, not sweet, didn't sense much on the nose, not much fruit on the palate, mild vegetal & minerally taste. Better the next day. DW enjoyed as well.

Light, drinkable, not much on the nose. Fine but not too exciting. Was cheap, tho...

Better than I remember the last bottle to be. Good color. Not much on the nose. Slightly bitter mid-palate -- but in a good way.

Seemed better than the first bottle. I think it was just different than I'm used to -- don't drink much Tempranillo...

Not too bad. Slight brown tinge on the color, some tartness in the nose and the palate. Drinkable but wouldn't buy more.

Seemed closed. Dark berry on the nose. Very short finish and slightly astringent. Drinkable but I don't plan to buy more. Unloved by my family.

Tart and closed on initial opening with enough sediment that we strained it. Now warm, dark and chewy after an hour. Quite good, would buy more.
