St. Michael-Eppan Lagrein Riserva 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Noticeable veneer of oak on the nose. Raspberry preserves and a little licorice and tar lurk under top notes of gamy leather and a hint of vanilla. This is actually quite complex and attractive on the nose, especially with some air. Smooth and a little soft in the mouth, this is almost Californian in ripeness and fades quickly on the finish, but the nose is certainly attractive. 87pts
