As everyone knows, Pinot Noir is all the rage. Therefore when you stumble across a Pinot that's under $20, you have to question the quality (too much pinot is being made, and it being a fickle grape the wines are often poor). This, however is very very tasty. Unoaked, uncomplicated, clean with lots of nice cherry flavors--just a really good, solid wine. In a way, it's the perfect table, red wine...would go with many foods (especially if one decides to chill it a bit--could pair just fine with very light dishes meats/and seafood). Great value. Fun label. German. What more could one want?
