Community Tasting Notes 4

    April 9, 2016 - Purchased at the winery in late 2013 and stored in my cellar since. Nothing interesting going on. Ripe, oak, short. No animal as the previous TN indicated. I'll hold my other bottle a few and hope the oak integrates and something develops. Meh.

    January 23, 2015 - Black fruits, animal notes with fur and leather, tobacco, lots of wood. Would guessed a mid-class spanish wine if tasted blind. Full-body, alcoholic, but not so intense flavors. Lots of tannin but structurally doesn't have the density, the length is also medium. It's a wine that shows the wannabe big-feeling, but it just doesn't have anything significant.

    October 2, 2013 - Deep dark ruby to garnet.
    Very vibrant and dense!
    Rich aromas of Ripe Berries and hints of Fruit in Rum.
    Complex play of Black Tea, Tobacco, Marzipan (Almond Paste) and Leather. Floral and Herbal characteristics. Present Oak and little Vanilla.
    Fruit characters are reserved and equally present as the other aroma layers. Beautiful, rich and complex!
    Flavors of Red and Dark Fruits, mostly Black Currant and Cedar.
    Multi-layered with Licorice, Leather and Dark Chocolate.
    Hints of Filigree Minerality and Saltiness.
    Finishes long with Red Fruit, Tight Acidity, Soft but Present Tannins and traces of Herbal Spiciness.
    Great concentration, perfect balance and a lot of finesse-
    in spite of the considerable use of oak.

    A wine that shines! Powerful, amazingly structured and complex.
    Substance for a long life and potential for a great evolution.
    Amazing fruit from a great vintage created one of the best red blends from Austria I ever had.
    Very approachable now- thanks to the fleshy Merlot-, but built for the future!
