Erwin Tinhof Blaufränkisch Von Den Hügeln 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep with smoky, chocolaty overtones to the lightly weedy, hay, tobacco, polleny floral-scented fruit that adds notes of black cherry and damp earth in the glass. With time this turns spicier, picking up notes of Middle Eastern spice, coriander and a hint of curry. This is broad on entry, with very soft tannins and nicely integrated acidity supporting transparent, almost cranberry-toned dried red cherry fruit. This is a light wine, easy going and styled very much like a Cru Beaujolais. The finish is a touch short, with crisp tannins finally showing up, adding nice definition to the light yet lingering notes of wild berry fruit. This is absolutely my kind of wine. 90pts
