Added Nov 4, 2012 at 1:17pmI recently opened a bottle of this wine in October 2012. The wine was 36 years old so my expectations were not so high. It was quite a surprise and proof to me that good German wine can last a long long time - as long as the best French. I let the wine breath for aprox 30 min before serving it. Then it had wonderful flavors of figs and apricots with a lingering taste of Acacia honey and gooseberry. We put the bottle away for the night after resealing it and proceeded to finish it the following night. Now the wine had developed more and taken on a distinctly rhuebarb and light honey flavor with a lingering taste of cold but smooth tea. All in all a delightful experience bearing in mind i had spend $12 for the bottle.

Added Oct 24, 2012 at 5:10pmWhen you drink a wine like this it is a moment you will cherish for many years. An amazing experience. Balance to perfection, smooth beyond belief. Blackberries mixed with redcurrent mixed with plum all mixed with lovely silky velvet. One of the best wines i have ever tasted. In the ranks of an Opus One, Grange, Sassicia or Vega Sicilla. Amongst the best wine you will ever taste.

Added Sep 28, 2012 at 5:23pmRecently drank a bottle from 2001 and it is very tired and well past its best - if it ever was good. The flavours were absent and dead.

Added Sep 23, 2012 at 10:50amNot being able to afford the big Duro wines of Spain i recently decided to try some of the Portugeese Duro wines and this one in particular is very good and great value. If you like a big tasty well balanced wine this is for you. Superb value.

Added Sep 22, 2012 at 8:49pmDo you like blueberry. This wine is an expression of blueberry in every way. You taste blueberry from start to finish......no layers just blueberry.

Added Sep 22, 2012 at 5:45pmThis is a powerful wine which in 2012 still has the ability to age for at least another 2-3 years. It has a strong rich flavour of blackberries, plum and blueberries all mixed together with a slight hint of tobacco. Perfect for strong dishes like beef or game. Not really for drinking without food. A slightly tanic finish which will diminish with more aging.
