Ratings and Tasting Notes:
AG=94 Dark garnet red. Spicy aromas of bing cherry, clove, juniper and cedar. The gripping blackberry fruit and velvety texture flesh out both the new oak and the herbal tannins. With sensuous depth and a long, seamless finish highlighting raspberries, the Sankt Paul has excellent potential and is without any doubt one of the finest Pinot Noir of the vintage.
WA=92 The 2012 Sankt Paul Spätburgunder GG offers a deep and fresh bouquet of chalk, lemon peel and wild berries. Full-bodied, very elegant and with a silky texture, this is powerful and long, yet also fresh and very finessed St Paul with lovely purity and harmony. The tannins are fine and refreshing and give a nice structure.
