Medium-full red with a good rim of purple; the aromas are dark cherry to plum, with some vanilla/chocolate nuances, while the flavours are of medium intensity and very attractive, with some mellowness starting up while the tannins are quite ample and add a touch of firmness that lasts. Very good wine, with the structure to handle flavoursome food.91 pts - Angus Hughson (Wine Pilot)
Looking for an introduction to German Pinot Noir, then your search is over with this example from Becker Landgraf classic in style and feel. It delivers a powerful dose of brooding dark cherry fruits, 15 months in 30% new French oak adding a spicy backbone. Distinctly juicy in style, fresh acidity then underpins flavours of fruit pastilles and exotic Middle Eastern spices with a sleek and satin mouthfeel delivered over a lingering finish. It’s a food-friendly wine well suited to quail risotto.
