Cobolorum Petillant Naturel Riesling

Finally got our couch! And our coffee table lesgoooo!

Sage leaf, orange zest, honey in the bouquet. And a little funk.

Wow. Zing! Karpow! Boom! I call this a comic book wine because it literally jumps off the page and into your taste buds.

Not bad at all. Thanks NYT.

Sunrise Over Skin Kick On Ranch Vineyard Skin-Contact Riesling 2019

Fuller bodied and delicious, even if it doesn’t really taste like Riesling. Delicate apricot, pear and lemon cream with a pie crust. I’d call it Chenin Blanc blind, with little hesitation. Great texture, medium acid, chalky... really pretty wine. — 23 days ago

Finger Lakes Semi-Dry Riesling 2018

Fresh, minerals, a bit underwhelming TBH compared to some of the other Rieslings from this region we’ve had of recent. — 8 days ago

You should seek their single vineyard offers, better QPR.

Appassionata Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir 2008

Amazingly beautiful and soft. After decanting, it took a few minutes to really open. Eucalyptus, black pepper, menthol, and faint blackberry brambles. Brick red coloration. Worth the wait! — 5 days ago

Wallufer Oberberg Müller-Thurgau Kabinett trocken 2016

Give this a big sniff. Honey. The orange blossom honey straw at the farmers market. It's suggestively sweet but without the slightest bit of residual sugar. Black peppered honey, coriander, and pineapple. A light weight - I"m guessing 10.5% - 11.5% ABV. B — 17 days ago

Never tasted the '17 Liaison, my bottles went directly into storage, the '17 'Basis' aka Baden PN was outstanding, hence I was confident the Liaison was likely off the hook. I'll find out in a few years after it settles a little.

Yeah, I'll my my '18's in a few weeks, I may sample one. Did have an '18 'Basis' in Aug, very tasty. I generally use the Baden PN to give me a read on all the upper tier bottles, same with the rosé. They are usually good indicators.
