Erste & Neue Lagrein 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very fine nose with lots of floral aromas, blackberry, smoke, gravel, tree bark. Really very nicely perfumed with cocoa and spice. This is a touch soft in the mouth. Soft and silky, in fact, with rich, dark berry fruit that has a slight woodsiness to it and a little streak of vanilla. Very smooth and plump with mineral and bitter spice notes on the lightly spicy finish. Has a slightly plum pie filling quality to it. This is really easy to drink. I love the way the finish cleanses the mouth, but it is a touch short. 88pts

Rocks and brownies on the nose with hints of raspberries and rose petals. While this shows a bit of gassiness on entry, it is immediately followed by big black fruit and tough little tannins, which make this a bit rustic and a bit chewy if firmly medium-bodied. The flavors are nice and fresh, all plum skin and spice. A clean, short finish shows mineral and spice notes with a return of aromatic rose petals. 87pts
