Ahr First Growth # 3

Weingut Adeneuer must be my
'Vineyard of the Year' in 2007..
as all the wines I drank have been fairly priced
and excellent quality.

Ahrweiler Rosenthal
Spätburgunder 2004

"Grosses Gewächs" trocken

Ahr, Germany

Quite deep ruby (for a Pinot)...roasted aromas.....with careful amount oak giving off a very fine creamy, vanilla bouquet; sweet fruit on the palate, some spices...slightly dry from the tannins..closed..didn't fill out even with airing.....the 'lesser' wines of 2005 are more attractive and drinkable at the moment.Give it a year or two.

Points 17 +
