Community Tasting Notes 11

    November 18, 2018 - Noble! What an improvement after 4 years I tasted it for the first time. Matured to still fresh, but much more mineral driven, more graphite, salinity. Still very fresh dark red fruit. Medium body, solid acidity, long dry finish. Structure and depth. Refined and smooth without feeling of being over polished. In perfect condition and no trace of tiredness.

    September 17, 2018 - Light in color, the medium bodied wine is already showing its truffle, tobacco, thyme, espresso and red fruit character. On the palate, the wine is probably close to mature, with a dusty, crisp, bright, fresh, sweet and tart red berry finish..

    February 20, 2016 - Sehr lecker. zunächst Kirsch und Waldfrüchte, dann immer mehr Süße und Schokolade. Hat viel Spaß gemacht. 1h dekantieren.

    November 4, 2015 - Appealing spice on the nose with a dusty palate full of dry soil notes, blackberry and restrained wood.

    December 27, 2014 - Easy, but stylish. Earthy dry tannins, medium body, round. Restraint fruit, good energy, good volume, pleasant mouthfeel. Medium finish, clean. No need to rush.
