Editor note: Clear, firm and polished, almost cool bouquet of blackcurrants and a little cherry with delicate floral and minty-herbal tones as well as a little bitter chocolate. Polished also in the mouth, juicy, dense, straightforward, ripe fruit, some bite, ethereal and floral nuances, slightly spicy wood tones, a little chocolate and coffee in the background, delicate acid bite, restrained power, some dry herbs, a hint of lemon pepper, still gaining complexity with air, very good, juicy and spicy finish with smoky, tobacco, salty and almost a little resinous tones. May still mature

The wine-growing region is located in the federal state of Baden-Württemberg in Germany. The vineyards cover 11,461 hectares of vines, stretching between Lake Con stance and the valley of the Tauber below Rothenburg (Taubergrund). The geographical and climatic conditions are shaped by many river valleys. On its very winding course, the tributaries Rems, Enz, Kocher and Jagst flow to the Neckar. On the riverbanks are many south-facing slopes with widely spaced vineyards. In summer there is enough sun to give red wines strength and colour. Two thirds of the vineyards are steep slopes or hillside sites. Heilbronn is the wine capital...
