Franz Keller 2014 Franz Anton Schwarzer Adler Pinot Noir (Baden)

#54 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2017
Return to List

Robust in body yet squarely structured, the Franz Anton shows more ripeness and concentration than the producer's standard-label bottling. Fleshy black cherry and berry flavors are ripe, but are offset by crisp acidity and a shroud of smoke and toast that accents without overwhelming. It's bold and penetrating, with a long finish marked by fine, persistent tannins. Delicious already, but bold enough to improve through at least 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
