Hundsrück Trocken Spätburgunder ,,J" 2014

Lyle Fass
9.7

This is out of this world. Stunning and super expansive nose of perfectly ripe mid season cherries that are utterly spectacular. Gorgeous wet earth notes and a hint of sweet wood. This is drop dead gorgeous. Such stunning purity. Palate is just explosive with stunning sweet fruit and velvety, sweet and ripe tannins. This is so fine. Graceful. Unreal length and sweetness. Just stunning. Incredible sap and purity. This is maybe the best Hundsruck I have ever had. Wow. Wow. — 5 days ago

Eins Zwei Dry '3' Trocken Riesling 2020

Energetic and friendly. Great with food and on it’s own. Full body, fresh tropical fruit, sturdy acid, and long. I’ve liked every Lietz wine I’ve ever had, and this way over-delivers for around $20. — 6 months ago

Wow what a nose. Stunning aromas that are so deep with the classic violets and spice. Gorgeous aromas and framed by the classic Walter sweet wood. Insane nose. Tree bark. Decadent. So juicy and sweet. Super concentrated and sapid but also elegant and haunting. Ethereal. Inner mouth aromas. Stunning and fresh. Opulent. Controlled opulence. — a month ago

Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Rheingau Spätlese Riesling 2011

A nice clean Riesling, with a sweetness balanced by a crisp acidity. Nothing extraordinary, but straightforward and classic. This wine went well with vegetarian curry. A good wine at a reasonable price. — 6 months ago

Rüdesheimer Drachenstein Riesling 2001

I didn’t get anything on the nose. Completely closed off and holding back. On the palate a different story. Vibrant, juicy acidity, some apricot and the color is so inviting . This is not classified with the typical German ripeness monikers, but judging by the balanced sweetness and alcohol level I would say it’s an Auslese. German Riesling + age = match made in heaven. — 2 months ago

Too bad. I usually stick with his dry/trocken versions.

I’ve experienced some of his Kabinetts as quite electric & chiseled. I can’t discount the fact I haven’t had a spatlese in a while, so my palate just out of practice
