A billowy entree to the wine - very dark berry fruit with faint game character, a slap of brambles, dry earth and lifted sweet spice of cloves and cinnamon. Deeply complex aromatics that preclude the layered, densely packed palate. Liquid minerality runs as a vein through the wine while Alpine herbs take care of its boundaries. Sleek cedar and nougat brings a touch of sweetness, there is some blood sausage/game character, but the lithe feel of the wine is brought alive with the bright, briary red and black forest fruits. Cool, almost refreshing, with an irrepressible presence and the underlying muscle and tension of a marathon runner. Will go the distance but superb now too.
Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 The Schubert Theorem shows off a beautifully perfumed black cherry, macerated blackberry and blueberry nose that captures a real underlying sweetness and is highlighted with touches of chocolate, cumin and lavender plus a whiff of pepper. Rich, full-bodied and packed with flavor, it is elegantly constructed though still very youthful and has firm grainy tannins framing the long and layered finish. Drink 2015 to 2025+.
Score: 96+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, February 2013.
