2005 Würtz Weinmann Pinot Noir Jakob Neumer
Aromas of classic red fruit are obvious, cherries and strawberries, plus a bit of cranberry. There is also some sage and a hint of truffle. On the palate, red fruits on the attack are clean and tart, but the mid-palate has a jammy richness and a bit of vanilla. The finish is mid-length. This wine has the classic pinot arc, starting delicately and growing toward the finish. It is an excellent value and a surprise from Germany.
