"Pink peppercorns, barrel spices, toasted chestnut, coconut, black olives. The nose is rococo, dramatic, and I was a little bit intimated.
One sip filled my mouth with this exquisitely gentle, pure-throated, nightingale song of sweet, limpid, pink-red fruit. Such a story to contrast! Roses and cherries, dimples and deep, deep pools of glowing fruit. Magical, suspense-filled; a thousand stories in every sip. The liquid version of One Thousand And One Nights? But still quintessentially Becker, and all this luminous fruit comes between the towering pillars of great, chewy tannins. It's and awesome wine,and I mean that is every sense of the word." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 18 points

Wine: A deep ruby red wine. On the palate, this Pinot Noir is dense, juicy, elegant and well balanced tannins with a good structure and length. On the nose it has aromas of wild berries, juniper, red pepper and tobacco. This wine has excellent ageing potential.
