Tasting Notes and Scores

189 g/rs, 11.5 alc., 10 g/a, 3300 bottles. Fermented in new oak, then racked into more new oak (the Dominique Laurent 200% new oak treatment) and aged 16 months before bottling. Kracher says he used the 200% new oak because he lost most of the red wine color (it displays a pink/orange brick robe) and flavors due to the high levels of botrytis. He feels the oak has replaced much of the lost tannins and red wine character turning it intersection what he calls a "cigar wine". Violets, oak spice, red cherries and currants are found in the aromas, followed by a caramel, raspberry, potpourri, rose petal-laced character. Drink it between 2005-2025+.
