German Pinot Noir

2004 Fitz-Ritter Pinot Noir ($19) -- Pfalz, Germany. Rotwein Trocken (Dry Red Wine); QbA. Yes, Germany does make red wine, although little makes it over to the US. I found this wine on the list at the old Pho Paris and I grabbed a few cases. I have enjoyed a few other Spatburgunders before, but this is a good entry level German Pinot for those who want to experiment. Not overly complex, but elegant with some cherry flavors and a medium finish. Probably best with food. Not overly acidic. Very pleasant and worth trying.

UPDATE: At last night's monthly Pinot get-together, this wine fared quite well and many took notice of the German Pinot, which is rare in Cincinnati.
