St Michael Eppan Lagrein Sanct Valentin 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep and meaty on the nose. Beefy almost with hints of cracked pepper and blackberry/black currant fruit, accented with an attractive hint of spicy green herbs. Taut and transparent in the mouth, this shows off a perfectly pure core of bright blackberry fruit, topped with chocolate accents and mint on the back end. The tannins show a bit of a dry edge on the finish though this remains very elegant even if it's quite ripe. The green mint makes me think a bit of Cabernet Franc. 91pts
