The entire gamut of cherry is deconstructed in a purple and lusty fashion, yet this wine winks mischievously and simply refuses onedimensional fruitiness. Through the earthy depth of peaty autumn leaves and fresh truffles, peppery spice, and roasted root vegetables, further dimensions are revealed. One is inspired to immediately cook a roast, which would certainly do this wine justice, for it requires time and air to open. While the austere and stony aftertaste speaks of the chalky origin, the unbridled power of firm and yet fine-grained tannins join vibrant, well-integrated acidity and the cool precision of the 2014 vintage for assertive and convincing sex appeal.
Furore & RotWeissrot: 17 Points, Falstaff: 95 points
