9.4

Nose is caramel, slate, peaches, nectarine, tangerine, and so much more. Subtle and wide open. Awesome viscous texture and lovey intensity. Juicy and focused with great precision and very well knit. Very complex with just a terrific mouthfeel. Long finish. Drinking so well now. — 4 days ago

Kestener Paulinsberg Pinot Noir* 2018

Lyle Fass
9.1

@Delectable Wine this is the one star. * thanks!

There’s something about middle Mosel Pinot I find thrilling. Nose has herbs, light red cherries and sour cherries and commandingly soars from the glass. Hint is spicey wood that is so appealing and if course this is on top of huge amounts of aromatic slate. This has unreal levels of just gorgeous minerality. Palate has oceans of sweet fruit and lovely soft impression with an intriguing mineral and salty finish. Sour and mid season cherries galore. Beautiful velvety tannins that are wonderfully sweet but also a bit big and drying but I think air will resolve that. Very juicy and pure with a hint of slightly green/sour element on the finish that keeps this from 9.3. Let’s see what air does. Air has made this decline slightly to a 9.1.

Juwel Silvaner 2020

Silver skinned friendly little guy - refreshing and won't offend a soul.

Shows a shimmering glow, faint spritz of lemon, pear, and lilac. Citrus oil and pears in a mouth of mildly viscous texture and good acid.

Slight preference for this year's Weissburgunder...

Enkircher Herrenberg Auslese Riesling 2019

Lyle Fass
9.9

Look at my previous note. Add age. That’s why this is a 9.9. Just the best 19 Auslese I’ve ever had. Masterful. Nervy tropical fruit. Elegant like nothing else. Loooooooong. Why is this not more well known? I did a poor job I guess. Also there is like none. — 16 days ago

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Kabinett Riesling 2020

Lyle Fass
9.5

No formal notes. Awesome. Juicy. Lime. So zesty. Very sappy.

Day 2 notes. Palate is so deep and ripe but nimble as all can be. Luscious and dense. Amazing purity and such a classic Kabinett. Nose is a bit mute today but palate is slamming.

Weiler Schlipe Spätburgunder 2014

Good acid, unfiltered Pinot Noir goodness. Tart red cherry flavors and a good layer of mild seed and skin tannins. Decant for 30 minutes ideally. Great with food, esp. duck, chicken and fish — 4 days ago

Juwel Weissburgunder 2020

Don't let the screw cap sell you short. This looks entry but beats most Gutswein.

Pours a glow of creamy pearls and chartreuse. The aromatics are light. Apples and pears.

Most of the magic happens in the mouth, where a soft spherical texture like simple syrup delivers on sweet orange bitters and celery soda.

Even clocks in with a punchy 13% so as to say hey, let me play with the big kids.
