Tasted in a Riedel Bordeaux glass - pure alcoholic heat. In a zalto bordeaux glass - texture was off, nose brioche. In a Zalto AP glass, brioche, chalk and unmistakable CURRY (!!?!?) and finally in a stolze quatrophil red wine glass where this special club saw its most pristine fruit, marzipan and minerality. — 2 months ago
NOSE: Overtly European. Yeast, barnyard, dirt, gun flint, dry herbs for cooking meat (including mustard?), bitter cherry.
I’ve never mentioned “mustard” in my wine notes before.
TASTE: As the nose - initial blast of yeast and barnyard. Lingering finish of … barnyard … in the sense of hay and manure. In between, silky tannins and a nice mouthfeel. Fruit is the background, but clear - tart cherry (quite distinctly cherry, bright red ones), raspberry, and plum. Go figure. I don’t know that I’d buy it again - it’s not my preferred style - but it is enjoyable. 89-90. — 2 months ago
Apricot and peach nose. Because of this we expected it to be sweet, but it isn't. Lemony, zingy palate, super smooth, and oh so drinkable. Excellent choice for a hot summer day. — a month ago
