Winemaker Notes

A fine nose of cherries, red currant fruit and spices. Elegant but well structured on the palate with a creamy texture and a long, crisp finish. A beautiful example of red wine fruit from the Old World with the sort of refinement only Pinot Noir can deliver.

Goat cheese will pair wonderfully with this wine.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

Fresh blackberry, red currant, kirsch, soy, pistachio paste, and marzipan lend Kesselers 2008 Pinot N Spatburgunder a combination of almost confectionary sweetness, saline savor, and sheer refreshment such as, among reds, only Pinot Noir can deliver, and that nevertheless engenders no sense of disharmony. Chewy fruit skin and piquant fruit pit notes add to the sense of invigoration; marrow-like meatiness lends an aura of mystery; while generous glycerin adds to the richness and textural allure displayed by this astonishing value that should continue to shine.
