(2012 Vintage) Beautiful ruby red color. The nose opens with intense notes of fresh red fruit fresh, such as cherries and strawberries, lightly underscored with aromas of thyme, bay and mint. Superb volume on the palate, with soft yet well-defined tannins. A wine with a fine balance of fruit.
"Full, rubbery and robust on the nose, with earthy berry aromas. The palate shows cassis, cherry and raspberry along with spiky, zesty acidity. Herbal, savory notes accent the finish, and overall this is a medium bodied Cab with lively fruit and freshness."
Smell is musty, dirt like. Not very pleasant. Bitter fruit on the front and most of the way through. Not much of a finish. Not much of a fan.
Great front and lasting taste as well as nose.
sehr erdig, voll im Geschmack, wenig Frucht
