Wine Review – Lovely Lilly Pinot Noir 2014

Lovely Lilly Pinot Noir 2014 Wine BottleWould definitely try another Pinot Noir from the Baden region in Germany…

Name: Lovely Lilly Pinot Noir

Vintage: 2014

Producer: Shelter Winery

Grape Varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Consumed: On a weekend getaway in Montreal

Recommended By: Last chance bin at the LCBO (a place we seem to have good success with).

Bottle Presentation: A monochrome sketch, something you might see in a high school art class, and somewhat unusual for an old-world Pinot Noir.

Appearance: Pale ruby, bordering on garnet.

Nose: Raspberries, strawberries, and some herbaceous and smoky notes.

Taste: Dry, low-to-medium acidity and tannins, light body, with notes of raspberries, plums, slate/minerals, and earth.

Finish: Short and sour.

Overall Impression: A good Pinot Noir from a quality German region. It is on par with many Pinot Noirs we’ve tasted, and although we wouldn’t necessarily drink this one again, we would definitely try another offering from the area.

Rating (from 70 to 100): 85/100

Value: 3/5
