Added Jun 3, 2009 at 1:56pmLight red color with a watery edge. Not real expressive on nose. A bit closed down. I didn't get a whole lot from this.

Added Aug 12, 2009 at 8:33pmLots of sediment. Dark purple that goes to clear just at the rim. Lots of secondary aged wine on the nose with some red fruit and smoky leather filling in the gaps. Very gentle, warm, and balanced on palate, but with a moderately long, slightly chalky, tannic finish. Drink this puppy now.

Added Aug 10, 2009 at 1:57pmBright cherry red in glass. Lots of cranberry and wild herbs on nose. Very forward. Tasted slightly bubbly, but that may have been the acid. On the palate, it reminded me of a simple, fruity pinot with lots of delicious acidity. Serve slightly chilled. Perfect for a summer night after a hot day.

Added Aug 1, 2009 at 5:56pmMore like a white wine than rose. Very pale color. Noticeably smoky on the nose with whiffs of herb garden and slate. Bone dry but balanced with a very subtle red fruit on palate. Get's points for being unique.

Added Jul 31, 2009 at 7:41pmOn the nose, this has a steely character with just the slightest touch of butter and banana in the background. Maybe a hint of chlorine. In the mouth there's some sour apple. The whole wine is pretty medium from start to finish. Solid but not exciting.

Added Jul 24, 2009 at 7:16pmDark violet color. Red plum and watermelon on nose, some spice too. Soft in mouth, medium tannins, a tart and acidic finish. Even though the alcohol is fairly low, this tastes a bit out of balance. Good value though.

Added Jul 10, 2009 at 8:33pmSlightly bubbly in the glass. Golden yellow color. Not too pronounced on the nose. A bit of rubber and red apples on nose with a bit of mineral. In mouth, honey and orange. A bit sweet for a Kabinett. The acidity balances the wine, but it is relatively low for what I would expect.

Added Jun 19, 2009 at 8:25pmParticularly complex nose for a wine in this price range. There's a ton of tropical fruit, pear, apple, banana, floral, and honey notes going on. It's really quite interesting to stick your nose in. In the mouth the wine is quite viscous and coats your mouth, but its not thick. There's a touch of sweetness to go with the good acidity and a lot of fruit tones. A bit too much ripe banana for me. Finish is a bit acidic.
