Short notes on a pretty decent local Pinot Noir, from a producer who, until now, has barely registered on the radar beyond Baden.

Weingut Heinemann, Spätburgunder Alte Reben 2009, Baden, Germany
A fragrant nose of cherry, spice, sweet oak, mint and herbs. Cherry vanilla on the palate. Powerful and woody, but well integrated on the whole with a refreshing kick of acidity. Purchased for around 8 or 9 euros, I think. Providing plenty of enjoyment for that price.
