Amidst a stunning line up of 2012 Spätburgunder, even Thörle's ready-to-drink, entry-level bottling offers remarkable elegance and power. The palate is succulent and ripe, bursting of black cherry and plum flavors. Nuanced tones of herb and smoky mineral lend depth and complexity. It's an approachable yet very sophisticated wine.
