I've long been a fan of the German pinot noirs, but I've long been in the minority as well. The light-in-body, ethereal style of Spatburgunder isn't for everyone, especially those who like weight and supple textures in their red wine. That being said, global warming is bringing more ripeness to Deutschland and more weight to its pinot noirs. This Borell-Diehl was almost too good to believe for fifteen bucks. It's more like Chorey-les-Beaune or Marsannay than classic German pinot, in my mind. Try one, because for the price it's a no risk situation. I'm pretty certain a lot of folks will find this to be a complete under-the-radar steal.
