    February 12, 2016 - I was able to get a couple of hours of decant time into this before starting, the nose has the very interesting herbaceous, forest floor ambiance that ruche presents. The palate began with sage, light cherry and dried leaves with tart acidity and muscular tannins. Time in the glass relaxed the tannins and smoothed them out but the acidity remained strong with a clean bite on the back of the tongue. Medium bodied with a reasonable finish, this elegant wine is for fans of savory wines, which I am one of.

    October 22, 2015 - Quite special wine. I prette much follow the previous taster of this wine. However, it came a bit more to my taste although it suffers a bit from too high alcohol.

    December 27, 2014 - Smells like a dark-red gewurz... if you follow? Massive rosewater aromas over botti-aged black cherry and raspberry fruit, with a dash of nail polish remover. Quite a full-bodied red, a bit rustic in character, with moderate acidity, prominent drying tannins and a warm, alcohol-driven finish. Fun to try, and truly special, but it didn't win our hearts or tastebuds.
