This was their Das Echtte Dunkel variation in the swing-top ceramic stoppered bottle. There are some peculiar notes here that other reviewers don’t seem to have picked up on. Namely, wild mushrooms and vanilla. There’s also a hint of smoked bubblegum and lace curtains. I could imagine this being successfully paired with a mushroom pasta dish, but on it’s own, very few people will really appreciate this one. fombe89 (3427) - Asturias, SPAIN - FEB 12, 2017
