- The Wine
Rather intensive purple with a violet rim, decent viscosity, ripe cassis fruit matches with intensive aromas of blackheart cherries, basically cool stylistic dominated by ripe blackberries, the humidor of a three-torques-restaurant, fresh thyme, red currant tart and pleasant toasty aromas.
2014: Dry, finely structured displaying an elegant fruitiness, stewed cherries with cloves, matching tannin structure, some liquorice and Manner waffles, dried plums and candied cornelian cherries, in any case on the juicy side, conciliatorily finish of a pleasant food companion, yet a touch of fresh beef conveys the idea of a cool-elegant balance. A real something considering the “bad” vintage 2014.
2015: Very consistent blending means that there is great continuity from the 2014. A true sign of an excellent winemaker.
Flo says of the 2015 (August 2018): Oh wow this is just one of my favourite wines and it delivers year on year with such brilliant flavour. Rich aromas of blackcurrant of raspberry with both the herbaceousness and sweetness of a cough drop appear on the nose. This wine has the juiciness and acidity of the Blaufrankisch counterbalanced with the rich tannin of the Cabernet. This wine is easy drinking both with or without food. If you are a lover of Pinot Noir, give this wine a try as it has similar notes on the palette to those found in some Swiss Pinot Noirs.
