Tinhof Leithaberg Rot Blaufrankisch/St. Laurent 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Earthy, powerful and dark on the nose with a lightly resinous note of dried pine cones over black cherry with a hint of dried orange peel in the mix. This is soft and polished on the tongue with plenty of fine, lightly powdery tannins buried in juicy, rich fruit that has a really pronounced mineral edge to it. This is deceptive in the mouth; it doesn’t seem particularly expansive and is not very aromatic, but does have great depth of fruit. There’s a hint of oak adding a little spice to the cherry fruit, which has excellent persistence, but this is wonderfully textured and has excellent purity with a very refreshing finish. 90pts
