Liaison Pinot Noir 2020

I like Liason in all shapes and sizes and 2020 has a lot to say without any pointy angles.

It's the one with a heavier hand, in cloudy maroon velvet sweats. Brighter and overt, the loyalists might miss some delicacy.

That familiar natty nose, with rolling perfumed volatility and stemmy, woodsy notes. Textured, syrupped, candied sweet cherry and rosemary for a mixed cocktail.

Richer than previous vintages it was much warmer. Yet still classic E&M.

Muschelkalk Pinot Noir 2020

Nose: intense. Raspberry liquor. Raspberry lipstick. Dark Pink flowers.

Palate: sweet berries. Lovely hint of bitterness.

Still one of the great red wines of Germany.

Buntsandstein Pinot Noir 2017

Unfortunately, this is a shadow of former self- mostly va character, almost no fruit remaining. Hoping other bottles fared better — a month ago

Achat Riesling 2020

A beautiful expression of Riesling. Amazing nose, layered purity of flower, light citrus, herbs, with vibrancy and fabulous life in the mouth. The nose on this wine is just pure Riesling. — a month ago

Baden Pinot Noir 2017

Tough vintage - might have been the worst in 10 years. Yet at 6 years this came around nice. I heard a lot of folks had concerns. Earth, bark, orange 🍊 rind, crushed marble, black currants, lime juice and a hint of cherry. So even this very basic version did quite well after 6 years. 12.5%. — 10 days ago

Schulen Spätburgunder 2019

Lyle Fass

Always a wonderful wine. Nose is soppy red cherries, limestone, herbs and all presented in a super subtle way. Gorgeous wet earth under. Palate is all red fruits, citrus and tons of tanginess and freshness. Great acids and form, powdery tannins. Needs some time but the length and purity are all there for my score to go higher. Tightest young Schulen I can remember. As this airs it gains concentration and explosiveness. Tiny red fruits bursting in your mouth with terrific grip and noble structure. Big tannins. What a wine. Still a 9.3. but I can see 9.4-9.5 with 6-18 hours of air. — 24 days ago

Alte Reben Spätburgunder 2021

Tasting sample, not yet fully released.
Closed & quite muted. Cool, darker berry. Beautiful tannins - present yet so juicy & polished. Filled by juicy acidity and nice energy. Great depth. Fresh. Juicy. Delicious

Somehow in 2021 the northern Pfalz puts Baden behind. The Rings Saumagen is just mind blowing.
