Alto Adige Moscato Rosa 2018

Lyle Fass

This is a novel wine. It’s Red Muscat that is served chilled like a white wine. It is easily one of Italy’s most unique and greatest wines. It has the character of wines in other styles that cost thousands of dollars but because it’s such a freaky grape and made in a freaky style, (11.5% almost like a Kabinett Red Wine) it’s not that expensive. Still it’s great. Truly epic. Like a dessert at a 3 star Michelin that centers around some insane sauce. This is the vinous equivalent of that sauce. The nose is floral to a degree that using floral to describe any other wine is an insult to this wine. It’s minty and smells almost like an apothecary in God’s waiting room. It’s got roses. I mean in your face yet subtle and beautiful roses. There’s also fresh green shrubbery. Like walking into a freshly manicured British aristocrat’s family garden. There’s deep black cherry skins. It’s pungent and potent but also haunting and beautiful. The palate tho! They combo of fresh/sweet/ electric sweetness and a guided decadence. Perfect balance. Insanely pure. Willi Schaefer vibes here. Gorgeous sweet tannins and a deliciousness that is rare in this world. After air the nose has green and oolong tea aromas. Just a mesmerizing nose. Palate and nose are 50/50. This is not a perfect wine but it’s perfect for me. 9.7. — 15 days ago

@Lyle Fass You'd better put 'freak show' in the offer name, or I'm gonna forget for sure. By then I'll be in the middle of reconciling the F20 ship. (The wife is gonna kill me when she sees all the boxes coming this time.)

Manna Schweizer Riesling Blend 2016

Lyle Fass

This is a crazy Riesling blend. Not sure all of them but it’s 5 grapes. It smells immediately like a wine that will fail on the palate if it does not have some major acids and minerals. It’s an exuberant and very fruity nose. The Gewurz is there and dominates like the loud person at a table of 5. Some mineral undertones and veggie florals if that makes sense. Palate is what I thought it would be. Loads of minerals and good acid to make it fresh. A very mineral wine that needs to be because of the exuberant nose. Nose gets more floral and interesting as it airs out. More nuanced. Some smoke and incense notes. Very interesting. Kind of like Italian Gemicher-Satz. A wine to reach for with a lot of food. Some piquant citrus and candied orange develop with air. Also the florals increase. It gains energy and sap. Really a fascinating first 10 minutes to this wine. Chameleon. Wonder where it settles. — a month ago

Selection A Spätburgunder 2003

I was wondering whether my 2003 bottles made it through the years. They did!
Mature, very 'round', full bodied, a bit on the sweet side just as i think is typical for a German 'Spätburgunder' (aka. pinot noir).
I love it!

Schweizer Pinot Nero 2016

Lyle Fass

Nose reminds me of so many things. Burgundian/German but uniquely Alto Adige as well. Fresh dead leaves, dusty cherry, floral, herbal, cherry, cherry flower. Hint of amaro type intensity, like one aroma from a Chinato. So unique. Textured and juicy. Calls back Liaison without the nattie character. Chiseled and precise but structured and young. In need of age. Perfect balance and very elegant. Complex and serious. Needs to open up. 9.2 for now. Long and sappy. — a month ago
