Community Tasting Notes 5

    May 22, 2021 - 93-95 vvPunkte (70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 14% Alkohol) Verführerische, noch vom Holz geprägte Nase, dunkle Frucht, Gewürze, Zimt, Zedern, Mokka, komplex. Im Auftakt zugänglich, weich, man möchte gleich schlucken, doch dann baut er aus, wird immer strukturbetonter, da ist eine angenehme Ladung von feinsten Gerbstoffen, die Säure trägt die delikate Frucht in einen sehr, sehr langen Abgang. Einmal mehr sehr gelungen und im Kontext seines moderaten Preises ein klarer Kauftipp. 2027-2045 (April/Mai 2021) vvWine.ch

    May 20, 2021 - Deep in color, the wine opens quickly with aromas of tobacco leaf, spicy currants, cedar, flowers, cigar box and blackberries. Full-bodied, round, concentrated and with ripe, polished, creamy tannins, the wine finishes with spicy, red berries, savory herbs and a refreshing spearmint note. Give this at least 8 years in the cellar and enjoy it over the following 2-3 decades. 93-95

    May 6, 2021 - Very very deep
    (struggling a touch here – my cold is getting to me) Shows some restraint… lovely purity of cassis and raspberry fruit.

    Some density and chew on the attack, chalky tannins, super lift – a real elegance in terms of weight and mouthfeel. Has breadth but seamless, some smoke, notes of tea. Juicy, with a savoury and toasty finish.

    April 28, 2021 - 2020 First Look: The blackberry and ganache nose on the 2020 is promising with a pleasantly warm, mineral palate and finish. Not obviously distinguished in terms of its energy or depth, but pleasant. 86-87

    April 21, 2021 - Super nose: focused and very refined with excellent purity. Black raspberry, nice seasoning and a leafy touch.
    Lovely lift and freshness on the palate; super poise and purity, lithe cassis and raspberry fruit, very long and fine.
