Synthesis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Classic big fruit tasting room Napa cab. I actually really like this because it represents the big fruit and oak wines of the past 25ish years. Cedar, currant jam, berries, baking spice. — 5 days ago

Viesslinger Stern Grüner Veltliner 2017

From the Viticole Wine Club. Yellow citric fruit followed by semi-dry, medium body with nice mineral notes. A wine that could be paired with most anything. Very nice. Very drinkable but not boring. — 3 days ago

Trarbacher Hühnerberg Riesling Auslese Trocken * 2014

Ok. This is whack. First off the color is orange. Only 2014 but tastes like a 15 year old wine. Permissive cork ?

Nose has aged Riesling and it smells like a very good sweet auslese. Dried peaches ?

Palate has age. Massive density. Massive. Concentrated orange peel. Rich. Some spice. Piquant.

I’ve never had a dry Riesling like this. It tastes like a sweet auslese without sugar

Day 2 this has a pleasant mushroom notes on the nose. Psychotic.

OMG nose. Confectionary. Apricot. Blood orange. All types of citrus complexity. Floral. Slate. So so so mineral. Almost like a fruit roll up from heaven. Amazing palate. So young, so much flavor. Huge apricot. Like a combo of fresh and dried apricots. So intense and so young. Showing 5% itself. More open on the nose than palate today. So precise and just wacky amounts of dry extract, freshness and minerality. Brilliant. Needs more air. I’ll be back. @Delectable Wine this is the no star Auslese Trocken. — a month ago

Kröver Kirchlay Spätlese Trocken Riesling ** 2016

Whoa. This is a surprise.

Nose is mineral made from petrified flowers. As it opens sweet state.

Palate has a blast of pebbly minerality. Almost like drinking flowers. Hint if white peach. Indescribably delicious. As it opens almost a sweet juiciness. Minerality is perfectly interlaced with the fruit.

Expansive internal aromatics. Some green apple.
