Idealistically speaking...

I don't normally do something so extravagant, but I Regional Bahn-ed it all the way to Schliengen just to buy six bottles of this at Blankenhorn.

Weingut Blankenhorn, Pinot Noir Idealiste Barrique trocken 2009
Ruby in appearance. Nose remains reticent throughout with raspberry, spice, chocolate and an ever so slight greenish hint. Velvety, elegant and amply structured. Quite a grippy sensation throughout on the palate. Dark berries, raspberry and a touch of chocolate. Already complex and great with food, though it still needs some time to bed in and shed its puppy fat.
