This lovely Pinot has edged up in my estimation since I reviewed it for my last report, so I thought I would publish a fresh tasting note. A deep scent and ripe flavors of dark cherry are accented by smoky, pungent marjoram, with brown spice and caramelized resin from barrel nicely relegated to the background. (Attmann works with a wide range of tonneliers noted for the discreet efficacy of their barrels and their willingness to adapt to winemakers’ wishes.) Hints of marzipan further reinforce the impression of sweet ripeness, but at the same time meatiness and salinity lend savory counterpoint and saliva-inducement on a silken yet brightly juicy palate. That savor and brightness keeps the ripeness from turning in the least cloying.
