"In the Gundlach Bundschu Vintage Reserve Red 2012, bold, seductive aromas waft out of the glass to greet the olfactory receptors with chocolate-covered blueberries. Beautiful notes of violets and lavender mingle with warm aromatics of Darjeeling tea and brown spices. On the palate, the wine is both mouthfilling and lush yet refined, showing a decadent core of blackberry and black currant, with some earthy tones leading into a pleasingly long finish nuanced by fresh espresso and tinges of graphite. The structure is supported by well-integrated but young tannins and a well-balanced acidity, culminating in yet another fantastic expression of the Vintage Reserve that reminds you why Bundschus have been known for Bordeaux-varietal wines since the 1800s. More than satisfying right now, this wine will slowly reveal everything she has to offer if you can hold on to her for the next 5 to 20 years."
