This wine doesn't taste as good as it did two days ago in Vienna. I blame Vienna.

Stupendously aromatic. Chewy without filtration but showing strong strawberry attack.

Elegant and beautiful. Great stance and balance of acidity, lush fruit and tannin with typical varietal characteristics.

Drinking this somewhat guiltily, but what's to be done? It's open. Leather plum hazelnuts and green herbs.

Wow! The 11 is even better than the 10 in my opinion. Lifted and more floral (a little e.a. in a great way!) Dark fruit, great texture and the perfect amount of earth without much pyrazine. Truly great.
