Decanted ~4hr, more time needed.
Color is cloudy, tawny garnet.
Nose has Maraschino cherry juice, violet, red rose and crushed red raspberry.
Palate has strawberry mash, red apple skin, creamy wood notes (almost like fresh whipped cream without sugar), grapefruit level acidity and a never giving up finish.
This wine, it's still too young but damn it's enjoyable!
Medium amounts of sediment in this bottle when decanted carefully, yet still lightly cloudy on the double decant for service this afternoon. Part of an epic E&M based afternoon plan as we sit by the chimnea on a beautiful early Spring day. The Gold Finches, Pine Siskins and Junco's are providing quite a background chorus. — 2 days ago

Color is brown ruby, unfiltered.
Nose has cedar infused cherry-red raspberry, rose-violet florals, touch of alcohol, bright potpourri and wet soil. Nose is quite tight!
Palate has strawberry juice, orange peel, under-ripe cherry, dried herbs, blackberry jam and great (high) acidity. Finish is medium at this point in a young life.
Soo young, but very elegant! Future bottles should be 2023+
Lightly cloudy on the double decant for service this afternoon. Part of an epic E&M based afternoon plan as we sit by the chimnea on a beautiful early Spring day. The Cardinal's and Chickadee's are now singing the background chorus. — 2 days ago

Hints of citrus, cream and grass both on the nose and in the taste. This was really nice, smooth and accessible. — 19 days ago

Color is cloudy peach.
Nose has juiced tangerine, cut green apple, dried citrus peel, honey and mashed apricot.
Palate has zingy citric acid, under-ripe white peach, yellow plum, confectionery sugar over fresh grapefruit, intensely long finish.
Last bottle. Lots of sediment in this bottle when decanted carefully, yet still cloudy on the double decant for service this afternoon. The start of an epic E&M based afternoon plan as we sit by the chimnea on a beautiful early Spring day. — 2 days ago
Moving along tonight, we're enjoying a young Spätburgunder after about a 60m decant.
Nose has dark fruits, plum, black cherry, wet iron, dried vine, dry soil, but wow that iron note is distinctive, almost sweet, interesting.
Palate is a little drying, dehydrated cherry, iron and minerally soil. A very long finish for a wine that's evolving more complexity with each sip.
I'm really getting into Baden-based winemakers. This is the premier vintage on this bottle. Future bottles should wait until 2022+
36hr Update: Palate has picked up significantly, bright cherry with a touch of raspberry on the finish. Iron note to the nose did not give up. — 11 days ago
Pinot that is peaking out. Great, red fruited freshness out of the bottle with a very faintly oxidative finish. Second glass is singing with juicy cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, and earth notes. Wine is dying down by the end of the bottle. Purchased for $4 in Kearney, Nebraska.
Yes, $4. — 5 days ago
