Ko-riesling night. When I think about the mosel I am more or less thinking of exactly this wine. Have had German Rieslings with more intensity and complexity but few that are more charming — a month ago

Terroir Roth Lay Uhlen Grosse Lage R Riesling 2015

Nose is screaming eagle mosel green apple out of the gate. Wow. Just leaps into the nose. Super ripe green apple. willi Schaefer levels of concentration. Interlaced minerality. Wow. Just that crunchy mosel minerals. Almost minerals made from petrified rips green apples they’re almost sweet. Gorgeous nose. Wow. As it averages it’s awesome. Almost a mineral green apple flower.

Palate is mind boggling. Extra extra extra levels of dense concentrated green apple. Some Grapefruit pith. Intensely mineral. Very very dense for a mosel wine. Sick concentration. Some candied grapefruit. Tremendous bright acidity. Wakes the palate. A little salty. Almost savory. Massive minerality. Almost painful like an explosion of rocks. Very delicious.

Long finish. Like you sucked on a delicious rock and it powdered in your mouth. Stunning. Terrific dense green apple in the finish. Almost mineral spice.

2020 June / July. Great in those instances where you want a Riesling for what it does with things like Thai or Vietnamese food - it has the right balance of acidity, sweetness, and minerality — 3 months ago

This is a novel wine. It’s Red Muscat that is served chilled like a white wine. It is easily one of Italy’s most unique and greatest wines. It has the character of wines in other styles that cost thousands of dollars but because it’s such a freaky grape and made in a freaky style, (11.5% almost like a Kabinett Red Wine) it’s not that expensive. Still it’s great. Truly epic. Like a dessert at a 3 star Michelin that centers around some insane sauce. This is the vinous equivalent of that sauce. The nose is floral to a degree that using floral to describe any other wine is an insult to this wine. It’s minty and smells almost like an apothecary in God’s waiting room. It’s got roses. I mean in your face yet subtle and beautiful roses. There’s also fresh green shrubbery. Like walking into a freshly manicured British aristocrat’s family garden. There’s deep black cherry skins. It’s pungent and potent but also haunting and beautiful. The palate tho! They combo of fresh/sweet/ electric sweetness and a guided decadence. Perfect balance. Insanely pure. Willi Schaefer vibes here. Gorgeous sweet tannins and a deliciousness that is rare in this world. After air the nose has green and oolong tea aromas. Just a mesmerizing nose. Palate and nose are 50/50. This is not a perfect wine but it’s perfect for me. 9.7. — 16 days ago

@Josh Morgenthau @Severn Goodwin coming in December. It’s gonna be the “Freak Show” wine of the year.

@Lyle Fass You'd better put 'freak show' in the offer name, or I'm gonna forget for sure. By then I'll be in the middle of reconciling the F20 ship. (The wife is gonna kill me when she sees all the boxes coming this time.)
