Wehlener Sonnenuhr Mosel Spätlese Riesling 2001

Shiny and fresh. Good bright fruit. Apricot, apples. With time in glass it’s developed a slightly candied finish — 6 days ago

@Adam Beasley Likely the best offer in MO, good range of wines, all age-able, esp the Norton's. We've had them back into the early 80's and 🤯.

I would have never expected that. Going to pick some up. Thanks!

Dominus Estate

Napanook Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Whatever day was today, that’s the day to open this wine. That’s my main take away. You could squirrel this away like some sort of miserly bastard waiting for the winter king to slay your enemies but who the F has time for that shit. Get on with your life, share this divine juice with as many people as possible so long as it’s no more than 3 and change the whole trajectory of your month. — a month ago

Graacher Himmelreich Spätlese Riesling 2007

Lyle Fass
9.7

Have not had in 5 years. Young as ever. Eternal. Smells like a 17 or 16. Super slate, Granny Smith apple flesh, woodlands, pine, apple skins, so lean and classic. The slate aromatic expression is wonderful. Awesome texture like icing on a cake and superb balance and freshness. What a finish. The unsung Prüm. Really compelling wine. Best showing ever. Such a huge core of fruit and mineral and the finish! This will last 25+ more year and this is my last bottle. What a great bottle. This is last of 4. I tasted this wine with Bert Selbach at the estate and was floored. Now the estate is sold and doesn’t exist anymore and Bert is retired. He was a great winemaker and if you ever find any of his stuff buy it. His Himmelreich and Domprobst stuff is top class and with age they transform . — a month ago

Monthélie Pinot Noir 1990

Nose has black cherry preserves, ripe mulberry, dry garden soil, slight tin notes, washed blueberries and damp leather.

Palate has light ripe (sweet) cherry, dried raspberry, dried tart cherry, dried leaves/leather, rose hip tea and moist soil. Lingering finish, acidity still present.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation at 10H, then double-decanted and 2H rest. All these bottles have been wonderful, glad to have more, ullage continually better.

Paired to asian-style rub, mesquite smoke, reverse sear (120°F slow heat, 10m rest, then high heat sear to 145°F internal), pork tenderloin. Perfection.

@Lyle Fass Incredibly, looks like dad had good vineyard sites, but 1990 a great vintage with a long future.

Enderle & Moll

Muschelkalk Pinot Noir 2014

Light color. Super delicate and delicious. Orange zest, dusty, more raspberry than cherry, white currant? / incredibly elegant. Within the Muschelkalk bracket in the top 25 percentile range. Totally drinkable on its own. Let’s just say this is f…ing magic. Pinot at the top of its game. Would argue drink now. This is at its peak. I would not recommend a decant. This is NOT a big in your face Pinot! — 3 days ago

Domaine François Cotat

La Grande Côte Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Nez riche avec une forte impression sucrée que l’on retrouve en bouche aussi, gras, rond avec un peu d’acidité, finale avec de l’alcool et comme un sucre résiduel, 89. Clairement identifié comme Cotat.

Blind tasting lunch 2009 theme. Nose with strong sugar and sweetness impression that we find on the round and fairly fat palate, a little bit of acidity to balnce it but a finish with some alcool and residual sugar, clearly identified as F. Cotat. 88-89
