Magdalena Vineyard Riesling 2016

9.2

Deep gold color in the glass. The aromatics were a bit of a rollercoaster…when still, it was filled with ripe honeycrisp apple and cinnamon dusted pear, but when you agitated it and tried to open it up, it yielded more unique notes like a touch of petrol and honeysuckle. The acidity on the palate was faint but enough to snap to prevent it from being too rounded. Rich in profile without being sweet, and plenty of tart spiced apple crisp on the finish. This expression is likely one best enjoyed younger due to the already somewhat round palate, but it sure is solid now with plenty of time to enjoy. — 5 days ago

One of the great FLX producers, I also love their Rieslings, esp the single-vinyard sites.

Niersteiner Paterberg Spätlese Riesling 2017

Classic petrol on the nose but not really much else, maybe a little bit of white grape juice. The palate is lovely with a wonderful brightness to offset the slightly elevated sugar. The fruit is ripe apricot and spout patch kids. the feel is a bit prickly at the start with a silkier finish. — 6 days ago
