Cinnamon and pepper add interest to the ripe blueberry fruit on the nose of this wine. The palate has the same generous, spicy flavors, with enough freshness to provide tension. The tannins are ripe but firm, framing all the juicy, dark and brooding fruit with perfect counterpoint. This is refreshing and intriguing.

German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
