Wine Advocate Review
There is more ripeness in the 2017 Unus than in the 2016 I tasted next to it. This feels younger and very fruit driven, juicier and with a softer texture, with volume and lush tannins. There is a balsamic hint here, powerful aromatics and a forward personality in this vintage, while keeping the composure and classical Mendel style, just a little more concentrated and ripe, but without excess. Drink now-2027.
Incredible dark purple color. The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but very suave wine with layers of ripe cherry and berry fruits, and the cocoa and vanilla flavors simply make this wines finish go on and on and on. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will certainly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist. Serve with absolutely any red-wine friendly food and you will have a ball!
