Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the gothest of them all? It’s either me or this wine. In spirit and/or taste. Dark on the outside perfumed inside. Lives up to being bone dry, if bones can live. Smells like raspberries and pomegranate molasses. with a hint of mint. So light in the mouth, which given its color is a surprise. Then again get one of us mildly goths to open up and we crack a smile. The better to show our custom fangs by my darling. Oh yes so on the palate it treads lightly in weight. Underripe cherries and roses and electricity or is that just the friendly acid giving me a love-zap? — 11 days ago
A few days shy of 3 years since my last btl. Strangely, I see no note for that experience. On the nose: soft game, dense pomegranate. pomegranate molasses, soft herbs...my wife loved this btl, which slightly surprised me. On the palate: fantastic acidity, vanilla, dense pomegranate and wild sttawberry, soft tannin on the finish. Stunning right now. — 5 days ago
This wine is delicious - pale lemon with a green tinge, 8%abv, medium sweet without being cloying thanks to abundant acidity. Lovely aroma of crushed stone, Mirabelle plums, lemon, lime, white peach, even a hint of pineapple along with honeysuckle and acacia. All the aroma are reflected on the palate with only the barest hint of petrol. Very long on the finish. It’s yours and closed now but in three or four years I’ll line up to get a glass of this. — 8 days ago
Gorgeous amber with orange evokes fine scotch. Tortoise shell lacing materializes. Orange bread and toasted sesame, Marcona almond, plantain and butternut squash pencil in the autumnal details. Poppyseed, toasty malt, allspice, acorn squash bread and a touch of ginger spice. Forgot what a seasonal treat this is!

Wow this has gotten glorious and turned the corner. Deep ripe mid to late season cherries. Spice. Violets, raspberry cake. The nose is elite and expressive. Wow. Citrus as well. More like tangelo zest. Acid is fierce as this is 2010 and this is amazingly fresh and has lovely sweetness and grip. Perfect balance and terrific purity. Awesome. This is really showing well. This has a decade to go. Just wonderful. — a day ago
Always such an incredible value. Honeyed citrus on the nose. Tangelo? Blood orange. So clean and abundant minerality. Juicy, and I mean really juicy, elegant and clean. Sappy and pure. Refreshing. Also a hint of nougat and a wonderful bit of opulence in the midpalate. So good. Lovely intense minerals and such purity. A terrific wine. — 4 days ago
Every time I don’t have a good bottle of (German) Riesling for a little while, I wonder why I bother with anything else. It’s just so satisfying. On the nose rocks and minerals. On the palate the acidity of green apple, the bitterness of grapefruit. Mouthwatering. Great stuff! — 5 days ago
A pretty pale straw color with little green tinges. Pure elegance from the beginning to the end. Fresh mangoes and delicate peaches on the nose. There’s an undeniable flinty essence here which permeates throughout, never losing steam. Moist stony minerality and dried herbs with just a pinch of elderflower.
It’s so nice when a wine showcases the terroir so clearly and demonstrably. Purely Mosel and very vibrant. Perfectly mature at the moment. Tight acidity and harmonious balance. The palate features some lovely apricot and lemon zest. A little mint on the long finish. — 3 days ago
Been about 1.75 years since I’ve had this. Nose is mid to late season cherries. These are deep and layered cherries. Insane spice and campfire notes. Super aromatic. Palate is terrific with high acids, great freshness and a supple texture. Super sweet fruit and tannins and so much acid! I love it. Really sweetly textured and lovely tiny berry fruit intensity. Long finish with loads of sap and structure to burn. Brilliant! — a day ago
Stunning nose. Saffron, rich honey and spices. Tangerine honey. Super rich, yet focused. Smells very rich and exotic. Wow, stunning palate. Rich yet so fresh with so much energy. Amazing purity and saline on the finish. Wow. Decadent yet so linear and energetic. Loads is citrus and guava. Perfect ripeness. A stunning Auslese. — 3 days ago
