Buy Paul Achs Blaufrankisch Altenberg
Vinous 92 points - Dark ruby with an inky core. Restrained aromas of black cherry, wild herbs and woodsmoke. Still a touch austere, offering flavors of blackberry, sage and vanillin oak, the 2011 Altenberg is a powerful, brooding Blaufrankisch. This slightly herbal wine is certainly tasting better today than when I last saw it 18 months ago. It also has more substance and potential than the 2012.  (Sep 2015)

Paul joined the family winery in 1991 after globe-trotting wine making, including California. Within four years, he was awarded Falstaff Winemaker of the Year. Achs now owns 21 hectares and rents 2 hectares– scattered in 40 sites around Gols. Along with Gernot Heinrich, Paul was one of the founding members of the Pannobile Association which is devoted to promoting the best wines from Gols; always made from Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch. Paul embraces the potential of the best cru in Gols to make Blaufrankisch, and in the 2003 vintage introduces a masterful trio of single vineyard Blaufrankisch: Altenberg, Spiegel and Ungerberg. Paul Achs produces wines that are simply impossible to resist– and are quickly defining the benchmark for the region.
