A Soul Is Saved

After abstaining from drinking the sexy red grape for a few days....and after a long, but successful business day..what better to reward myself..than a good Spätburgunder.
Would it please me?...
Well...great grower..Knipser..from the Pfalz..and a Grosses Gewächs..and an excell
ent year..
sexy lips..shapely hips...oops..I am now into fantasyland.....but has been a few days.....

Knipser Mergelweg Spätburgunder
GG trocken 2005
Pfalz, Germany

Firstly..the 'Photo Shoot' turned out well(click to enlarge)...all that glass...and first impressions of this wine were the earthy, classy dryer style of the Pfalz. I have said it before..this is Pinot for Bordeaux lovers. It spends 10 months in oak...gorgeous berry fruit..wild forest strawberries...the tongue is cloaked in a shroud of velvet..and a long finish. Real class here...
Points 18..........a soul is saved!!!!

I was going to be impolite and suggest that more than one bottle might be needed for salvation, but that seems ungentlemanly!
