2012 Schweigen Sonnenberg Spätburgunder trocken Grosses Gewächs "Sankt Paul", Monopol, Pfalz, Germany

Fairly tart nose, still rather closed, restrained vegetal notes, red and a few black berries, some oak and tobacco, dried musrooms, bacon and earthy notes. Ripe, tart, juicy, polished fruit on the palate, tart vegetal and earthy aromas, toasted oak, lively, elegant acidity, fairly well integrated, sandy, slightly astringent tannins, noticeable salty notes in the background, touch of soup greens, very good substance and persistence, hint of tobacco, very good finish.

Editor note: Translate to English Fester, etwas getrocknet-vegetabiler und nussig-holziger Duft nach schwarzen und ein wenig roten Beeren mit tabakigen Nuancen, Pilzen und ein wenig Suppenkräutern. Reife, saftige, gewürzig-holzige Frucht im Mund, röstige bis leicht rußige Aromen, etwas Säurebiss und ein wenig antrocknendes Tannin, fleischige Noten, gute Substanz und Nachhaltigkeit, viel Kraft, mineralische Anklänge, wieder auch Suppenkräuter, sehr guter, etwas salziger, aber auch noch ein wenig holzig-spröder Abgang.
