DECANTER.COM 91 POINTS This wine, from the blue Devonian slate of the Ahr valley, has been the Meyer-Nakel calling card for years. Sourced from different parcels in the village of Dernau, it spent 10 months in used barriques and presents a wonderful introduction to Ahr Pinot Noirs. It's a lovely blend of smoke and cherry on the nose, while the palate is slender and shows lots of tart red fruit. The tannins have a gentle grip and the freshness is mouthwatering.

***

Ahr Valley's Werner Nakel is called the "red-wine wizard" - one of the leaders of modern Germany's high-quality Pinot Noir movement. This Estate Pinot has a wonderfully bright ruby red hue, with aromas and flavors of ripe raspberries and blackberries. It shows both a juicy fruit filling and a fine minerality from the distinctive blue slate makeup of the vineyards, with subtle notes of smoke and cloves. The tannin is velvety, elegant and full of finesse.
