In a wonderful place. Nose of spice and resin, pine needles, cherries, herbs, dried hay, citrus rind and more. This has gotten so much better since its awkward youth. Palate is fresh and linear with terrific acids and lean, fresh cherry fruit. Lovely length and purity. Air will improve but what an effort in a hard vintage. — a month ago

Réserve Sekt Riesling 1984

Nose has sea salted ripe peach slice, watermelon rind, browned yellow apple slice, tangerine peel and crushed seashells.

Palate has tart nectarine, lime zest, under-ripe green apple, faint peach notes with light salinity on the long finish.

By far the most youthful presentation of our recent bottles (92/88/84), plenty of verve and tension left here, acids are still strong, energetic but fading bubbles. Notable evolution with more air time in the Gabriel-Glas.

Wehlener Sonnenuhr Spätlese Riesling 2019

Paired this one with spicy Thai and it worked perfectly. Racy acidity and a bushel of apples is my best description for this wine. Nicely balanced. Sweet but not overly sweet. Worth seeing how this wine evolves with age. — 7 days ago

Graacher Himmelreich Auslese Riesling 2009

My bottle was in perfect shape and had aged perfectly. Fresh pineapple followed by crisp green apple. Outstanding wine and ready to drink now. Not over sweet like many Ausleses, but instead, perfectly balanced and perfect with Chinese food. This Riesling has a precision to its flavors that is extraordinary — 18 days ago

Spätburgunder Rosé 2020

Notes are cumbersome, so no notes today but plus side, scores are honest and I should be a professional reviewer, LOL. (Good, but not 2019 good, detailed notes on future bottles...)

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this final afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our guest conductor Michael Tilson Thomas is leading IVES (Psalm 90) and BEETHOVEN (Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Opus 125).

After a two-year pause, we arrive again to the day when Beethoven concludes on these hallowed grounds. The 9th by Beethoven is always bittersweet for us, as it marks the end of the official Symphony and Pops season for the BSO at their Summer home. It is a wonderful and singularly emotive piece moved with the full force of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus (110+) conveying the message of a divine spark of joy that makes all people one. The music and the day almost bring me to tears on an annual basis...
