($60) Medium ruby. Roasted red and black fruits and a meaty nuance on the nose. Sweet, fat and very ripe; seems more Pomerol in style than St. Emilion. Finishes with full, ripe tannins. "A bon-bon, not an intellectual wine," says proprietor Stephan von Neipperg.

Very good wine. Probably faded a bit out of the bottle, and likely decanted too long. Would say best within the first 30/60 minutes open. Smooth, subtle and drinking well.

A big powerful wine, still a lot of tannins. Good fruit, but needs to soften up. This could have done with another 5 years, amazing !

Inky color with blackberries and brambles on the nose. Rich taste of black fruit and smoke with a brief funky note on the finish. Can certainly taste the cab franc in this one. Served this with a beef tenderloin with Madeira sauce and that didn't help the wine. I liked the wine better the next day and would pair it with a lamb dish.
