94-Points, Wine Enthusiast magazine "There's a tannic sturdiness here that suggests ageability, but it's really delicious now. Black currant, chocolate, cherry and sweet herb flavors are perfectly meshed with fine, toasty oak. Brims with class and distinction."
91-Points, Connoisseurs’ Guide publication "From the first sniff to the last, lingering notes of its fantastically long aftertaste, this exceptional bottling combines complex fruit smelling and tasting of currants, raspberries and a hint of blackberry with enriching seasoning of vanilla, cocoa and tangy oak. The wine is quite supple at entry and, in spite of its high ripeness and extracted nature, never gives in to heat or tannin. Enjoy it over the next five to eight years."
Volker Eisele is that rare combination of gentleman farmer and successful vinter. His wines are meticulously crafted and in great demand at the highest levels.
