2005 Dr. Heyden Pinot Noir Estate Trocken
Review Date: 08-15-2008
Yes that's right German Pinot Noir... and you know what? It's great!! Don't be too quick to dismiss German reds, as you know it's been quite warm the past few vintages and all things point to that trend continuing in the future. For those of you who long for the elegant, supple, style that used to be made here in California this bottle is for you. The nose is full of crushed blackberries, spice and stone, with a supple, medium-bodied mouth and a bright, juicy, dry finish. This bottle is best served just above cellar temperature with about 20 minutes of air.
