2009 Ptujska Klet Pullus Modri Pinot Noir

Semi-transparent red purple wine, easy to open with its modern screwcap, despite being made by the oldest winery in Slovenia which dates from 1239. Warm, inviting aroma of cooked fruit with a trace of earthiness. Medium-light body, light structure. Flavor starts out mild but grows in intensity, with strawberry notes. Finishes long and hot—though it’s only 12.5% alcohol—and ultimately plummy. A cross between new world and old world pinot noir, in the best way. Good summer drinking. Recommended.
