Meyer-Näkel Neuenahrer Sonnenberg Spätburgunder 2009

Member Review by Christy Canterbury MW:

Not lacking an ounce of ambition, this Spätburgunder shows generously ripe fruit and a rather dense mid-palate. It's also quite oaky, but this could settle out in the mix with more time in the bottle as there is sufficient barnyard, game and Bing cherries to work around. Medium plus finish.
