    November 17, 2014 - Cork was decrepit, fell apart and wine was past. Not fully oxidized, but I would say enough to rob it of any interest. We drank most of it but got tired of it. Tasted over 48h with boring consistency.

    October 9, 2012 - Medium intensity nose of quince, candied orange, wet stone, smoke; medium bodied, high acidity (envelops the sugar); lemon peel, baked apple; creaminess; medium finish of lemon/green apple/acidity. Improves with air. Slightly unbalanced (acidity lingers alone), a bit too creamy; reasonable complexity.

    October 9, 2012 - Very nice, though not up to the level of the last bottle I enjoyed. There's a mature burnished quality to the fruit, bright herbal, smoky and creamy accents with a nice acid spine beneath, but it doesn't have the depth or persistence I recollect from my last bottle, coming across a little thinner and light on the back end.

    August 25, 2010 - Much better than the corresponding Saarburger Rausch - this feels a little more developed with lovely smoky, spicy and herbal accents on top of the rich orchard fruit and honeyed flavours. Lighter and fresher than the Rausch with a nice acid backbone that freshens up the fruit and serious length.
