87 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): "Becker's bright ruby-colored 2012 Spätburgunder offers a very delicate and floral bouquet of red berries. Medium-bodied, fresh and pure, this silky textured Pinot Noir seems light but the finish reveals good grip, fruit intensity and a persistent power. Very good quality and a serious alternative to generic Bourgognes. Drink: 2015-2018. (Dec 2015)"

87 points Wine & Spirits: "An old-school German pinot noir, this is dark and earthy, with plenty of caramel from oak to sweeten the mulled fruit flavor. Play up the earthy richness with a mushroom fricassee. (Dec 2016)"

Importer notes: "Some of the fruit for this Estate Pinot Noir is from the estate's top Grosses Gewächs vineyards. The chalky limestone yields supple flavors of black cherry fruit, baked rhubarb, and blueberry on the palate. There's a velvety finesse, which yields to aromatic violets and lavender, freshly picked tarragon, cola and bitter dark chocolate. A real crowd pleaser! Alcohol 13.5%."
