Fruity on the nose with a nice underlay of toasty oak spice and vanilla and top notes of braised herbs, licorice and violets. This is smooth and supple in the mouth with an initial rush of smoky, toasty and scorched earth inner-mouth perfumes. Perhaps a bit on the tight side, this shows a fairly heavy if balanced load of load tannins in the mouth along with dark pencil lead and toast flavors over some grape, with red currants and fresh purple and blue fruits. The finish is cut short by the tannins. This has some of the hardness and underlying unyielding nature of old school winemaking. I bet this gets better with 2-5 years in the cellar. Needs an aggressive steak for dinner tonight. 90pts

Perfumed on the nose with a strong pine resin note over rich, ripe blueberry fruit. In the mouth this is soft and dry with black cherry fruit that’s wrapped in a clumsy, chunky mouthfeel. The fruit turns a bit muddied and indistinct on the finish. 84pts

45% syrah, 40% carignan, 15% grenache. The nose starts with a strong hit of dirt then manure, but with juicy blackberries underneath. The flavor doesn't have the fruit, but is an interesting combination of olive and fennel seeds. Next to no finish.

Artisan juni proeverij - De smaak is opvallend zacht en soepel. De hinten van sappige bessen en de zachte zuren geven de wijn zijn elegante karakter. Lichte tonen van vanille in de afdronk

BBQ potentie. Licht geur, prettige schoenenzweet. Drinkbaar, sappig, voor niet roodwijn liefhebbers prima. Paul van Kats wijn

Intensives Granatrot. Komplexes und reiches Aromenspiel in der Nase. Kraftvoll und gut strukturiert im Gaumen. Eine saftige und einladende Cuvée mit reifenFruchtnoten, einem eleganten runden Körper und einem nachhaltigen Abgang.

Maybe we'd all be sitting in the pews a little more often if we got to drink this delicious wine. This is literally "altar" wine used during mass at the Stift Goettweig monastery. A crisp white wine that's full of floral pollen and mossy minerals.

A subtle touch of wood frames a primarily reduced nose though some earth influence can be discerned beneath the funk. Otherwise the textured supple and attractively complex middle weight flavors possess good detail and a certain underlying tension that culminates in a delicious if mildly rustic finish. Burghound.

A very Chassagne nose of pepper warm earth underbrush and somewhat somber dark pinot fruit leads to rich round and delicious middle weight flavors that are notably more serious than the Bourgogne all wrapped in a mouth coating balanced and lingering finish. Fine quality at this level in a slightly more structured package. Burghound.

Full yellow-gold. Exotic aromas of poached pear honeycomb and dried flowers with a musky saline nuance and a suggestion of tropical fruits. Tactile in the mid-palate with a strong flavor of ripe pear. A bit clenched on the back with some disjointed acidity giving the finish a dry edge. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

A fresh airy and very cool nose carries a whiff of herbal nuance to the red currant game and underbrush aromas that precede minerally and energetic flavors that possess a tangy finish that is well defined though the structural elements are not completely integrated and thus the overall impression is more one of youthful awkwardness than perfect balance. Burghound.

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points Wine Spectator: Still tight, with the core of cherry and red currant fruit held in check by a mix of lightly firm sandalwood, spice, licorice root and warm stone flavors. Mulled fig and cocoa notes check in on the grippy finish. A rare backward style 2008 that will need some cellaring to round into form. Best from 2013 through 2020. (2/28/11)
