first nose after opening: intensive black currant - promising more than afterwards delivered

after decanting:
a little bit of alcoholics
a lot of tannins + toasting
good structure but not harmonic now
it needs now at least 3 h of decanting to go get a little bit smother

it needs time! - wait 5 Years

First Nose:surprising intensive black elderberry
Second Nose: Cherry, black currant

Taste:
liquourice, almonds, wood, sweetness, full bodied but not very complex
I think it is still too young, needs a lot of air to open

nose: cellar, earth, chocolate, cedar, ethanol
Taste: dark chocolate, very strong Tanins, wild cherry
decant it at least 1 hr before starting to drink
I think it needs more time (2-5 years) but now I'm not sure if it goes above 92 points with aging. - I Drunk a 1/2 Bottle standalone from climatised cellar.

Tanins good structured but not integrated , bitter almond, wild chery, needs at least 2-3 hrs air, nice nose with some juicy red berries, dark chocolate, wait another 2 years - might improve, when tanins gets smother, but not for long term aging acity might get dominant

20 min dekantiert ca. 18 Grad
1. Nase: Kaffee etwas Vanille breit und sehr sauber, Mineralik und Erde, Tabak
2. Nase: Schokolade Brombeere
Gaumen: Amareno Kirsche, Mineralik, sehr Edel und sehr voller Körper, langer Abgang.
Optimale erste Reife ohne Ecken und Kanten, kann sicher nochmals 8 Jahre sehr gut bestehen.
Mit 13 Vol % für einen Österreicher eher am unteren Band in dieser Qallitätsklasse, - das schaffen sonst nur die Franzosen im Bordeaux - Ja so mag ich's !

Magnum from climatized cellar:
Weichselian, coffee, chocolate, ripe blackberries, bitter almonds, wet leaves, long finish, mouthfilling
first impression after 1 Hr decanting: a bit disapointing and not balanced but this changed to an perfect balance after another hour decanting
==> needs 2 hrs decanting to open
I love well-made wines from "bad" years if they ripe

Dark red almost Black no Orange at the Glas Border
1st nose : cassis, Vanille ,Chocolate, Celler, Earth
2nd nose : a Lot of Fruit - whow ! , Figs
The first sip After 10 minutes : a litle Bit thin but After 5-10 seconds in the mouth it changes to a fully bodied wine - you think you have a cherry between the teeth and there is a long Finish, the tannins are already smoother than at arrivage. But they are Not yet Balanced.
After 1 Hour:
Nothing at this wine is thin the tannins are smoother but more present Almonds bitter
After 2 houres:
N: less fruit, dried plum, a little bit ethanol?
Mouth: Wild cherry with a Lot of tanins

This was just a 1/2 bottle and it was much too early to Drink - but i'm very glad to Own 1 Full Case of normal bottles and a Case of 1/2 bottles. I'm sure this wine will go up to 93-95 Points when it matures.
Drank standalone

opened 3 Magnums and 1 0,75l in the office for my colleges. The smaler bottle was even better than the magnum since it showed more fruit. Both formates had a perfect balance and the smal bottle was very close to the high. So my last magnum keeps in (cool) cellar another 3-5 Years.
