Oberon Spätburgunder Rotwein Trocken 2005

Oberon Spätburgurder 2005This Oberon Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) 2005 from Germany has a light-ruby, pale color. I notice black cherries and grass on the nose. This wine is soft and velvety with just a hint of fruity sweetness. I chose this wine to accompany our roast chicken dinner tonight. I think it will be perfect.

Tom: This Oberon Spätburgunder 2005 (rotwein means red wine, trocken means dry) is a very interesting pinot noir: it has a very strong bouquet and taste of cherries, it is ruby in color, medium in body, dry but not tannic. (It comes from the Baden region of southern Germany, which is near the French wine region of Alsace.) This is a fun and different wine and will be excellent with our roast chicken.
