Maximal Gut&Edel 2016

@delectable Gut&edel. Grape is gutedel (it’s a joke). Sometimes among the most austere grapes I’ve had. This is like a slightly fruity Chablis. Good minerality and acidity. Somewhere between interesting and delicious. A great change of pace. Bought from fass selections. — 4 days ago

Eisendell Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Spätlese Riesling 2006

The decision to hold this wine until ready made me think of a musician tuning a guitar. He’s turning the keys and plucking the top two strings until the A and the E are the same. And then he strums a heart melting deeply harmonic E chord.

I imagine this wine was tasted, tasted again, then when everything was in tune, magic happens and it’s time for sharing.

It’s glowing gold. Burnt popcorn kernels. Honey. The sweetest indulgent peach preserves.

Spätburgunder Rosé 2017

Still fantastic an unbeatable super complex Rose. In a way it is sad that only very few people have access to this wine. The 2013 is still in my cellar. See all my previous notes on this beauty and previous vintages. Herbs 🌿. Orange rind. Spice cardamom touch bitter. For years this has been the best Rose money can buy. Let it warm up to almost room temperature !!!!!! And breathe for at least an hour. — 8 days ago

Birthday celebration for @Cody Uzzel at Lucio’s with a bunch of friends. All wines (except sparklers) tasted blind.

Killer Riesling that was a fan favorite; ripe peaches, lychee, honeysuckle. Well balanced and perfectly age worthy.

Freigeist Salzspeicher Sour Porter Cherry

A smattering of tan spots, like Queen Anne’s lace, appear, then slip into the murk. An alar Geist remains, like a smeared mirror. Dried cherries and black currants with ripe huckleberry, dried fig,
cherry tobacco and a touch of licorice, coffee and peeled poppy. Bitter chocolate and dried bing cherries tear an astral hole of arabic in the thick spring veil of dried violets and cloves with a decidedly burnt edge to the currant. Valerian tendencies abound. Dark ghosts that scribble runes through carbon paper.

One of my contributions, delicious. Needed time to open up but once it did it proved to be a nice addition to the previous Riesling, although it didn’t drink as nicely.

Spätburgunder Wanne 2015

Super wine. Nose of sweet minerals, juicy cherries, minerals and loads of complex soil tones. Palate is fresh as a daisy and superbly linear and so so fresh. Lots of explosive black and red cherry fruit. Fantastic balance and purity. Amazingly juicy with elegant tannins and insane purity. So long. A baby still but easy to drink. — 10 days ago

Freigeist Geisterzug Quince Gose

What a pleasant gose! Lively, frothy and full of energy! Lime, tangerine, rhubarb, mild grapefruit, green strawberry and grape Bottlecap candy. Tangy rhubarb and slightly riper strawberry blossom on the palate with a dry lime finish and a briny mesh that blankets the mouth in cozy, lazy afternoon comfort. It is literally the polar opposite of the label, which features a scary freigeist ghost‘freespirit’, and a seemingly haunted tower/monument in shadow. I’m sure there’s irony baked into this! Have a ghostly good time in the hot sun...or hell. — 3 days ago

Terrific nose out of the gates. Sour cherry, floral, pine resin, pine needles, lilacs, gorgeous florals. Cranberry as well. Even pomegranate. Stunning nose. Palate is s refined and ultra elegant with gorgeously sweet fruit. Silky and sweet with unreal fruit and lovely acidity. So silky and sweet with a gossamer like texture. Terrific and ridiculous. What a showing. — 5 days ago
