This is AP#46.
Ten years on.
Bright crimson, paling rim. On entry this is suave and inviting, the indigo fruit of ’05 with just a touch of oak (no toast). Mocha flavors and wood-spice lift to reveal a wine of uncommon grace and energy. Fruit grows more atmospheric; airy inferences run to woodland strawberry, pomegranate, red citrus. Lithe, mineral palate. Savory finish, faithful to his shell limestone origins. A soaring Rheinhessen. Now – 2020.
