Sattler St. Laurent Reserve 2010
"I had already tasted at Glatzer the day before, and was forming my theory that the best among the '10s were the kinds of red wines I absolutely loved. After the extravagances of the two mezzo-forte '11s [of Sattler's basic St. Laurent and Zweigelt] this is more my world: finesse, purity, articulation, fruit. Focused and refined and almost noble; salty and sweetly smoky. Dollar for dollar I'm sure you can't find Burgundy this good. Shapely and delicious, like a veal stock with cloves and rose-hip."
