Lori Kilmartin WSET3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An easy drinking Pinot from the Wirtemberg region of Germany. Medium bodied with aromas of red cherries and smoke with an underlying earthiness. Balanced acidity and tannins with flavours of cherry on a medium finish.

The winery website says to pair with veal and pheasant.

Craig Haynes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This pinot noir was crafted with grapes grown in Germany’s Württemberg production area, the country’s fourth largest wine producing region. Showed an attractive shade of pale ruby. Modest aromas of sweet cherries, caramel and black pepper transitioned to be the primary flavours on the dry, medium bodied palate. Light notes of coco and cedar made an appearance, too. Although short to medium in length, the finish was fruit filled. Enjoy.

Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely cool-climate Pinot Noir with hints of cherry, earth, leather and spice. Medium bodied, dry, with light tannins, and tart cherry notes, slight herbaceous and smoky hints on the finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon or pork.

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.
