Cabernet Sauvignon, Zweigelt & Pinot Noir in equal parts aged in 80% new french oak. Hans told us that he grafted over the Cabernet in this vineyard after this vintage, because it only got ripe once or twice a decade, "a mistaken folly of his youth and enology school" his father told him. This however is the one that got ripe! 2000 is a spectacular year in Austria for red wines. When he first told us about this "Super Strasser" (Strass is the town he is in) we were baffled by the blend. Cabernet and Pinot Noir are not normally grapes you think of with Pinot Noir. Somehow or another this screwy blend works! Chocolaty ripeness, complex combination of sweet cherry, spice, chocolate and tobacco. Full, dense and rich in the mouth with hints of toasty vanilla in the finish, extraordinary value for the price!
