To say I came away impressed would be an understatement. Anyone who claims this big, rich style can't age needs to taste these wines. I opted to just list my scores for the older releases as I find Bob's initial write-ups spot on. They have solid concentration and overall balanced profiles that should allow them to cruise in the cellar. About as good as it gets across the board, these singular, incredible wines are the result of an obsessive attention to detail at all stages of the wine making process. There is no secret or hidden magic going on here. The incredibly talented and down-to-earth Manfred Krankl simply walks the walk as opposed to only talking about attention to detail or offering up the standard, wine is made in the vineyard comments.

98 points Wine Spectator
Fantastic spice aromas lead to notes of fresh ground black pepper, beef carpaccio, rich blackberry and roasted coffee, giving this an exotic mix of flavors. Dense, concentrated, structured and tightly focused, striking a balance between the broad array of flavors and the firm tannins. *Collectible* (JL) (2/2010)
