2021 Pfaffenhofen Merlot VDP.Ortswein trocken, Württemberg, Germany

Clear, slightly bacony aroma of black and red berries with herbaceous, floral and meaty traces. Tart fruit with crumbly-sandy tannins, nutty and delicately smoky barrel notes and floral hints again, a hint of chocolate and coffee on the palate, some salt, certain persistence, good to very good, relatively firm finish.
