Wine Review Report :

wein.plus rating: Very good (88 WP)
Last reviewed: 24 November, 2014
Editor note: Translate to English Etwas entwickelte, deutlich holtzwürzige und leicht kompottige Nase nach teilos eingelegten Kirschen und gemischten Beeren mit kräuterigen Aromen, etwas Nüssen, Gwürzen sowie erdigen bis mineralischen Noten. Sehr kräftig im Mund, wieder etwas kompottige Frucht, röstiges und schokoladiges Holz, pfeffrige Gewürznoten und kräuterige Aromen, etwas Säurebiss, reifes, noch immer recht präsentes Tannin, nachhaltig, wärmender Alkohol, viel Fett, aber auch Biss und Griff, speckige Töne, sehr guter, alkoholstarker und kompottiger Abgang. Es fehlen ein wenig die Feinheiten.

Editor note: Deep, complex nose, light notes of smoked meat, ripe berries, soot, herbs and some chocolate. Still quite youthful on the palate, concentrated, dominated by cool red berry and cherry fruit, has backbone and structure, prominent oak just beginning to integrate, good mineral structure, attractive depth, alcohol already well integrated, long finish. Needs time to mature.

The red grape variety originates from the historical Lower Styria (Austria-Hungary) in today's northeast Slovenia. There are about 120 synonyms, which indicate a high age and wide distribution.
