Erwin Tinhof St. Laurent 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This offers up distinctly herbal and earthy aromas that range from quinine to dry, clay soil with a nice core of beetrooty, spicy, cola-scented, slightly nutty wild plum fruit. This is earthy and very vaguely bitter upfront, with good acidity that squeezes out the sides from under the bright, taut fruit. Soft and yet with real tension on the palate. The lightly blueberry/wild berry-toned fruit builds on the mid-palate and shows flashes of plum on the backend, before evolving into a complex braid of earth, herb and fruit on the medium-length finish. This is not the richest or most intense wine of the bunch but structurally it’s the most appealing, with terrific balance and freshness. Absolutely floats across the palate and onto the finish. 92pts
