Peter Martin Ray Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

I had this tucked away in the cellar and finally pulled it out. What a pleasant surprise. Clean, bright red fruits with plenty of acidity balanced by a few earthy, tertiary notes. Wonderfully enjoyable. I’m glad I have one more bottle! — a month ago

Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Delightful - truly delightful. The nose alone is absolutely impeccable. Pure, bright cherries, clove, Asian spices, potpourri, gunpowder, tilled sod, damp earth. Really nice OR PN. — 3 days ago

Just read about this producer recently and have a bottle of the ‘18 Jessie James vineyard on the way to try out. Great to see such a positive note! 🍷

Kröver Paradies Spätlese Mosel Riesling ** 2018

Insane nose. Mullen is the god level sweet wine maker now in the Mosel. Creamsicle, Slate, apricot, lime blossom, massive pure pulverized slate dust, so perfumed. With air there is canned fruit juice, blackcurrants and more. The palate is deep, rich, sweet and wonderfully fresh. Incredible zippy minerals and a creamy, round texture. Juicy, balanced and pure. Packed with peach, apricot, pink grapefruit, confectionary sugar and fresh honey. Invigorating but also harmonious. What poise, balance, depth and purity. A stunner. Has 30 years to go. — 22 days ago

Trarbacher Huhnerberg Spätlese Riesling 2015

Wow. One of the great vineyards of the world. A formerly ignored part of the mosel. Now famous because of high scores. Brilliant wines from auslese to off dry to dry. For my money the top producer in the mosel.

Nose is the best peaches in the world. Insane peach perfume as it opens.

Palate is perfect peaches and candies sugar made from peaches. Acidity crushes the palate. Huge acidity and freshness. Amazing. Texture is perfect. It lets you know who’s boss but doesn’t interfere.

As this opens it flays the palate with a whip made of magic peaches.

Still young. Will add complexity as it ages. Will last 40 years or more.

I’m having this with goat cheese and truffle honey.

Kröver Letterlay Riesling Spätlese** Trocken 2015

Martin muellen Krover letterlay spatlese ** trocken.

Nose is so peachy it doesn’t smell like a trocken. Huge peach. As it evolves more ages Riesling petrol notes.

Palate is big crunchy rocks. Sweet peach flesh and skin. Delicious.

Long finish like a peach infused running stream.

Massively mineral nose. Also honey, pink grapefruit, kumqwat, slate, mineral water, brown butter, sweet bread (challah?) lime zest, peach skin and on and on. So so complex. Palate is ripe and rich with impressive sweetness and energy. Dazzlingly pure and honeyed with a round, creamy mouthfeel and texture. Really dense and elegant as well. Toes that line wonderfully. Juicy and explosive with tiny citrus and stone fruit intensity. Leaves a lovely honeyed palate impression. Awesome mineral intensity in the mid palate and finish. — 22 days ago
