External Reviews for Dr. Konstantin Frank Pinot Noir
Cherry, strawberry, vanilla and spice aromas start this pretty Pinot. Fruity and friendly but backed by a nice spicy complexity, the wine will pair well with wild game or lamb.
Shows all the classic attributes of Pinot Noir from an exceptionally ripe vintage: deep burgundy color; cherry, plum, blackberry and vanilla aromas with cloves and forest floor undertones; impressive ripe tannins and a long, clean finish.
Showing well despite its age, with good black cherry, toast and spice notes. Slightly firm finish, but the fruit hangs on well enough. Drink now.
Despite this wine's light color, it carries a lot of flavor intensity. Cherry cola aromas gradually give way to coffee, caramel and bitter chocolate notes. Crisp acidity brings all the flavors together, forming a firm backbone - it will be interesting to see if this is one Finger Lakes Pinot that can age.
