  1. I tasted the Muri-Gries 2009 Lagrein. It exhibits a deep, garnet red color, with a strong cherry and chocolate nose. An intense palate of spice, chocolate and cherry, with a slightly bitter, tannic finish. As a varietal, the Lagrein is a bit on the acidic side, and this wine is no exception. It would easily overwhelm a light dish, but the acidity makes it a wonderful foil to a strong meat dish, such as a braise, roasted meats or game. This wine was awarded two glasses (very good to excellent in its respective category) by Gambero Rosso 2011, a perfect example of this regional varietal, meant to be paired with the mountain foods of this area.

  2. All I can say is, I drank it tonight and am feeling slightly fruity after a hard day at the office. I am probably feeling slightly less bitter, just a touch woody and definitely game. Sorry, folks, couldn’t resist that! It really is very good, and worthy of the Muri name – to be consumed together at a future date not too far distant, please!!!
