2014 Bürgstadt Hundsrück Spätburgunder trocken "J", Franconia/Franken, Germany

Mushroomy and woody aroma of ripe red and a little black berries with some beetroot in the background, hints of smoke and nutty tones. Tart fruit with present, drying tannins and noticeable wood, good substance and persistence, but unfortunately, at least at the moment, also a little brittle texture, bread crust in the background, a touch of pepper, also salty minerality, very good, if slightly drying finish.
