Nice red/purple color. Black fruit, Forrest Floor and purple flowers fill the nose. Blackberry/Elderberry/Black cherry on the pallet with hints of banana, earth and mushroom on the pallet. Light body and light acidity (would have liked to see more acidity). Fresh tasting. Nice heft. Basic but quite approachable. — a month ago
Smell of ripened sweet plums in an orchard where a strong aromatic herbs are grown along the edge.
Dense and lovely - this wine shows bright, rich fruits, raspberry pie, unsweetened blackberry jam, hints of Provençal herbs with a lip smacking tanginess, and elderberry acidity.
Give me a Skurnik find any day.

Tangerine honey, grapefruit sugar, with peonies, the most perfect, spun cotton candy, chamomile, pear and apple and almond and hazelnut, chutney, and toast with a nano marmalade containing frozen peaches. The exquisite peach blossom honey, chamomile, sultanas, elderberry, gooseberry, quince, dried starfruit and lime. Incredibly layered in folds of dried and concentrated richness. #riesling #deutschewein #wein #beerenauslese #dessertwine #botrytis — 3 years ago
Black currant, elderberry, and cedar on the nose. Thick, spicy cherry chocolate. Perfectly balanced and dry for an LBV. Very chewy and grippy — making this wine a real treat. — 2 years ago

Man! This was a stunner — 4 years ago
Cassis, cherry and smoke nose. Doesn't require much airing/decenting. Earth, leather and oak opens into a mellow, semi-dry finish. Lasting elderberry, strawberry and mushroom. Quaffable, Where's my straw? — a year ago
Beautiful cherry and fruitwood aroma. Lipstick and liquer. Some herbs- black tea, bay, oregano. Super perfumed. Elderberry. Purple fruited with lovely prickly tannins on the finish. Absolutely has the structure to age 10+ years.
Day three and this is just so earthy and beautiful and completely vibrant. Up to 9.5. Love. — 2 years ago
