Mint, dried tea leaves, peppercorn, little/no oak, and fruits playing the second fiddle here: red plum, juicy red and black cherry. A whiff of VA and smoke.. Moderate plus acidity, tight tannins, and relatively fuller bodied (13%, for Pinot)..

It has been awhile since I have had a still wine from Alsace. I love the elongated bottle! Beautiful medium translucent ruby red in color..I let this decant all afternoon! Kermit Lynch tasting note indicated that this is ready to drink now!!
Really nice Pinot Noir..the fruit is there..tart
cherry..cranberries & raspberry. Earth and baking spices are the star of this wine..cinnamon..black tea leaves...nutmeg and crushed rocks. Pinot Noir from Alsace....who would have thought!! 🙃

Lighter style. Velvety silken tannins. Good structure. Savoury edge to it with green olives and touches of earth. Hints of cherry fruit.

Albert Boxler #Alsace Pinot Noir - baking dried sour cherry pie vapors, nearly viscous and round mid palate landing, spreads liquor-like to sweet tarts and smoke cloud.
