    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.

    This is a more modern style of Pinot and there is plenty to enjoy about this fleshy red. Strawberry, cherry and mushroom aromas are followed by plenty of juicy fruit on the palate with a hint of white pepper towards the finish. This is a fuller style than some of the other German Pinot Noir I've recently tried but it is still quite refreshing. There is length to the finish and acidity that balances. Pairing suggestions include roasted game, grilled sausage and scallops.
