Jermann Pinot Noir Red Angel Moonlight 2013
This is one of the most sought-after wine from the region. Interest in this wine is less pronounced than in previous years. In the glass a deep dark red color. In the nose red cherries, strawberries, leather and liliacs with a touch of minerality. On the palate tart strawberries are dominant, with hints of green pepper. Its aroma is heady, well-orchestrated, and slightly herbaceous. It stands out with elegant finesse. Its taste is delicate, elegant, full bodied, and yet slightly sweet and balanced.
