Medium ruby color with aromas of ripe red fruits and elegant hints of floral. On the palate flavors of black cherry, raspberry and plum with hints of fig and tobacco. Tannins are fine and round, a tad young with high acidity noted. The finish is medium, smooth and ends with oak and earthy mineral notes. Very nice. Needs time. — a month ago

Patience and Protein.
Upon opening, this is a tannic beast. Decanted 1/2 hr or so. But... the sausage w Swiss chard and Marcella’s tomatoe sauce over polenta brought out its beauty.
N: Tar, underbrush, cola, roses, iron, dank minerality.
P: Really needs￼ protein. Dark fruits, long,
Not rich but sappy, snappy finish. Pine forest, black cherry.

Great little Austrian red. Nice balance between cherries, peppery notes, and very subtle oak. Paired well with smoked bleu and Mario Golf: Super Rush. — 11 days ago
Nose is intense. Some peach. Some white truffle? Very good.
Palate is peach juice. Good balance. Some spice. Delicious. Good acidity.
