Unique orange-style skin contact wine. Needs air and is way better on night 2. Nose has tangy orchard fruit, butter, wildflowers, and minerals. Crisp and flavorful, it’s more like an Oregon Pinot Gris than anything from Germany or Alsace, though, really, it’s its own thing. — 19 days ago
Germany does Hermitage. This is a stunning wine and can easily compete with the top the Rhone has to offer. Incredible stuff. Syrah has a bright future in Baden as well. Unreal perfume. Red berry fruit, superbly detailed, so mineral, bittersweet cocoa, tobacco, almost cassis and a hint of blackberry. So aromatic. Just amazing. Palate has stunning concentration and also stunning freshness. It is so fine. So nimble, almost Rieslingesque in its nimble fresh character. Wonderful tannins and the level of liveliness on the palate is like nothing else. Amazing hit of mid palate opulence. God this stunning. So textured. Such an amazing expression of place, soil and stunning freshness. Maybe the freshest Syrah I’ve ever had. Amazing velvety tannins. Finish is a mile long. Will age but super accessible today. One of the best wines I’ve ever had from Ziereisen. Just epic.

Light & aetheric, seductive - herbs, raspberries, undergrowth, some shy cooked mushrooms. Complex and elegant with beautiful structure, fine grained juicy tannins, pure fruit. Blind - this is a Chambolle. Beautiful. — 6 days ago
More fun than a barrel of itself. It really shines. It’s own kind of business really. No wrench of any kind....um...i went bananas for it.....ok I’m done. — 14 days ago
What a nose. Singing! Huge red cherry fruit. So perfumed. Floral. A hint of earth and some mesmerizing spice. A nose one can smell over and over and over. It’s just insane. Juicy and complex with stunning acidity and freshness and a lacey, lean, silken structure. So elegant and such fine fine tannins. Amazingly long finish with awesome acidity and brilliant balance. Just a stunning, stunning wine. Such sweetness and sappiness all at the same time. Amazingly pure. While very good now this has a bright future. — 6 days ago
