A bit astringent on the nose with notes of iron and toasted oak accenting the slightly roasted black cherry fruit. Soft and silky on entry this shows of some crisp tannins with a savory edged core of bitter cherry fruit. There’s good complexity here and the fruit powers right through the bright finish. Nice depth and complexity, certainly not the best wine here but one that is ready and delicious. 88pts

tasted 4/2012, Probably could use a bit more cellar time, but very french (i,e, subtle) but presents with lovely fruit and sublime finish once it has enough air.

Leuchtendes Purpurrot, beeriges Bouquet mit Aromen von Kirschen, Walderdbeeren und Brombeeren, zeigt auch sanft röstige Holzfassnoten, im Gaumen mit Fülle und Kraft, schöne Aromenkonzentration, druckvoll, sehr beerig, im Abgang mit noch jugendlichen, sehr präsenten Gerbstoffen, langanhaltend mit deutlichen Holzfassnuancen.

Fresh and pure with a friendly beam of raspberry and black cherry fruit pushed gently by mineral and tobacco hints on the open-knit finish. Drink now. 19 166 cases made. -JM Wine Spectator.

Winemaker's Notes:

"Sweet plum, deep cherry and currant notes as well as underbrush and earthiness are all present in this elegant, mid-weight wine, which has good freshness, decent acidity, and ripe tannin. It should drink nicely for up to 7-8 years." --Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
