Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted June 1, 2018. Colour clear ruby red. Legs medium plus. Aromas and flavours of black cherry, notes of spice, flat cola. Taste dry, medium mouthfeel, mouthwatering minus, balanced tannin with the cherry fruit. Finishes medium cherry cola. I like this wine because of the black cherry and easy drinking nature of this wine. I think it is a good value. I matched it with a cast iron roasted chicken and Dutch mini potatoes. Sprinkled with herbs De Provence and butter. The wine can handle the fat and still delivers that gorgeous black cherry taste. I would buy this wine again. I would like to try it with duck legs. Roasteted. Goat cheese. Yup inhences the cherry and brings out some spice. Serve this wine chilled straight from your wine fridge.
Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Such great value at this price point! Red berries, slight vanilla cola and faint barnyard on the nose. Refreshing medium body ripe cranberries and underripe strawberries with mellow spice. It holds it own on a nice summer day served at 15 degrees. I really enjoyed it on a weeknight with a Dutch grilled cheese! It's good Pinot in the simplest form. Great to have more on hand for those hard days!




Natalie's Review

Eugen Altschuh Pinot Noir 2015, Pfalz Qualit├Ątswein, Germany: A lovely German Pinot Noir with aromas of fleshy ripe black cherry, raspberry and cola. Surprisingly high alcohol for Germen Pinot at 14% but it doesn't taste hot and is balanced. Smooth and supple. Pair with veal and game dishes. Drink: 2018-2022. 550350 14% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 89/100. April 28, 2018 Best Value Red Wine. Luscious Lamb Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
