Evocative of liquid silk on the palate, this remarkably opulent, plush Pinot Noir is a testament to the ripeness found in temperate German wine regions like the Pfalz. Feathery tannins blanket rich blackberry and cherry flavors. Crisp acidity brightens the finish. It's a juicy, satisfying wine that should hold well through 2018.
