Dark garnet with just the slightest tinge of brick on the rim. The nose was toasty with white truffles, rose petals, licorice and cigar smoke. The tannins were Uber fine with a silky texture. In the mouth ripe raspberries mingle with cherries, tobacco, coffee and dried herbs. The finish is long and hints of tar and crushed stone. A beautiful wine with another 10+ years of aging potential.

Total masculine approach. Pretty violet and cherry nose into a rich yet soft mouthfeel of truffle and light tar. Still very young as no bricking on the wine, tannins are firm and acid still high. Pretty wine that can age well 10-20 years

Lots of tannins. High acidity too. Green. Medium bodied. Young. I think this gets better 5 years out.

Can't beat the price for this boutique producer. I'd still give it a year or two of cellaring but everything is there for great pleasure

Young but approachable; good value.

Very modern and soft. Tannin is softened by what I can only guess is a healthy dose of micro oxygenation. Cheap, and would be a great restaurant wine due to its readiness to drink.

Structure and varietal treat though not high end. Great with weiß Wurst prunes and potato purée
