German, Austrian, and Saké buyer at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA. My opinions are my own.
It is officially squirrel season! The Rose by Kruger-Rumpf is made entirely of Pinot Noir, is 12%abv, and greets you with a bouquet of white flowers, followed by a scent of Ruby Red Grapefruit, followed by a show-stopping taste of cranberry. It eerily reminds you of a Cape Cod cocktail, and mysteriously disappears from the glass. ☺️ — 10 days ago
Still young and takes a bit to open up... now getting black cherry, forest floor, ash, and lavender. Highish acid. In terms of body in the Spatburgunder realm, this is quite Amazonian. Not a meek wine by any standards, but still poised and elegant. — a month ago
