    Getting used to and certainly not for everyone, but I like this partly superimposed wine flavor very well. The 2017 special edition is similar to the special edition of 2013. Both have received a Pinot Noir Cask finish and are therefore similar, of course, with the 2017er version of the slightly longer maturity and the slightly older age in my opinion already noted. I'm doing this unusual finish, I like it.
    • Nose
      Dried and sweet grapes stand out powerfully from the glass, the high alcohol content tickles the nose immediately. Slowly, the alcohol stops and extremely sweet grapes and berries come to the fore, a touch of creamy roasted aromas mingle with hazelnuts and sticky sweetness. Tart fruit flavors sparkle here and there, all-chocolate and a pinch of cinnamon spread powerfully in the nose. Cocoa powder and slightly grassy hints follow, Gewürztraminer and fruity red wine comes to my mind ;-) Creamy and sweet invites the Black Forest to the first sip.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity, the first sip flows through the palate. Fruity berries, sweetness and cinnamon literally explode in the mouth and powerfully distribute their dreamlike bouquet. Roasted flavors and ground nuts follow, sour and sweet grape flavors play together and leave an intense spicy note on the tongue. Cinnamon, yes again, cinnamon powder spreads dusty on the tongue, cocoa powder also trickles on the tongue. A variety of different flavors dance on the palate and leave a cozy warmth.
    • Finish
      The partly superimposed aromas from the taste burn in the end also their fireworks and do not really want to end. Spicy wood, sweet berries and sour grapes and this incredible spice stick for a long time on the palate.
