Pinot’s - Burgs - German Pinot. Consulting for a local wine store. Always on the hunt for the next special one. European Palate.
Top winery carried and imported by Kermit Lynch. This is their 3rd wine. Their Rosso is 40$. The Brunello 80$+. I bought this bottle for 20$. Then a case. This overdelivers! Might age a couple of years. Quite big and rich. Dusty tannins, Sangiovese fruit. Black cherries 🍒 what is not to like? — 5 days ago
I am a big fan of Graham’s Rieslings and his Pinot’s are getting there! Give it 15 min to breathe! Powerful nose of fresh turmeric powder. In the glass plenty of spice hint of turmeric/green pepper. Fruit is strawberry compote touch bitter an interesting blend. Seems he included some stems. Just 13.5%. An excellent rendition of a cool climate California Pinot. 👍. Really well done for a reasonable price. — 12 days ago
Way to young! There is no doubt this Wine will be awesome in a couple of years from now and age easily a decade. Big and tart - hint of green apple very faint touch of mint. Massive minerality and fruit Meyer Lemon - mandarine zest. So this is my first white from Thörle essentially this is a winery which makes quality wine across their lineup. — 11 hours ago
Really rough at first. Plenty of Bret. Tastes initially like KambuCha. A natural wine? Very chalky. There is cherry under there. Very rustic and difficult to drink right now. It will probably mellow out. At the moment just for serious wine 🤓’s. — 5 days ago
This producer used excessive reductive wine making techniques for his reds in 2015. I tried the whole line up a year ago. Plenty of mercaptans = volatile sulfur = rotten eggs on the nose - i was shocked at the time and thought these will be a hard sell. So what has changed with an extra year on the bottle - still super stinky nose but the wine tastes fine with traces of tar, roses and black cherry. Quite soft right now. There is a lot going on in this wine and it needs at least an hour of decant! For the restaurant sommeliers on this site - your clients will be shocked at first and the reaction of my Vino friends was mixed. I still like this wine and producer - I bought the 16 - but this is really a wine for the folks who have patience. Pricy! 80$ or so. — 12 days ago
A fantastic wine. But let it warm up! I drank it at almost room temp. Scheurebe was developed by Georg Scheu in 1916. A cross of the Bukettraube with Riesling and it shows! Super aromatic, white grapefruit, herbs, touch of marjoram? Green apple. Hint of mandarine zest. Tart. Less acidic then Riesling! — 5 days ago
Sometimes i get carried away and my German Heritage shines through. So I tasted this wine ‘after distancing myself for 2 weeks’. This is still a stunner could be a 80$ bottle of burgundy. For the money 30$ or so unbeatable. Dark cherries minerals, salty just delish. I will for sure seek out the next vintages. — 12 days ago
