He said: Opened 30-minutes before drinking. Dark ruby red color with lots of purple tint and a pale red rim. Light plum and blackberry aromas with distinct hints of earth. Quite strong, DRY, dark fruit taste with silky smooth tannins and a bursting with juiciness fruit flavored medium-length dusty finish. Light bouquet, but a plush mouth-feel with lots of lingering flavors. This is a wine that’s very similar to Pinot Noir and it has a complexity that grows with every sip. A good value Austrian red.
She said: The aroma was very light and led to an equally light taste. The wine was dry, had a medium body and super smooth tannins all the way through the medium-length finish It was food friendly and went well with our rather bland flavored dinner. I really liked the dryness and ultra-soft but tasty tannins. It was VERY good but a little neutral for my palate.Comments: Learn more about the Sattler Vineyard.
