Some You Win, Some You Lose

The same shopkeeper that recommended the Zalwander suggested this wine as well.
Never come across this grower before.
Schlumberger Pinot Noir 'Eich' 2005,
Baden, Germany
Pale colour..heading for rosé territory...short bouquet...there one second..then gone...on the palate..'sweet' as in bon-bon and jam....some jammy pinots when balanced are a treat...this just had the sweetness and no more...not a bad wine..but the style is poor..and overall it
seemed synthetic and contrived...not one that I would want again...strange...
Points 15

The suggestion on the back label to decant would only have prolonged the agony.
