Rausch Kabinett Riesling 2009

Vintage 2009 / impeccable balance with great acidity, even now I think it is too young. But hey, it gives enormous joy. Razorsharp, spicy smell, butterscotch. Saar wine from riesling with... only 8 procent alcohol. Very vibrant. — a day ago

Another Wednesday Wine Committee for the books, this one in honor of a former WWC member, with the wines donates from his cellar by his family. A wonderful tribute. Wines tasted blind as usual.

I called this Alsatian Gewürztraminer due to the sweetness and viscosity of the wine, but German Riesling was my other option. Buttered and baked biscuit with honey, slight petrol, lychee, and apple crisp. Drinking well.

Agreed, one of my favorites as well, we have several producers in our cellar on this site.

Fritz Haag

Brauneberger Juffer Kabinett Riesling 2015

So expressive from this tiny 8% intro from Fritz Haag. Strong diesel, smoke, pencil shavings, honeyed tangerine, green aloe, and white flowers. Weighty texture and zippy flashy acid. — 18 days ago

The aged wines Lyle sells from this producer are great.

Barrel X Saar Feinherb Riesling 2016

My favorite Saar multi-vineyard Riesling blend. Picking up more tart green apple that prior bottles, also wet slate and light petrol notes are becoming apparent with more bottle age.

Great wine to sneak into a film festival in my water bottle tonight, yum!

Koberner Riesling 2017

This is like if Coche-Dury made Riesling! The richness combined with the freshness in this wine is just not fair. It is so, so good. I'm not going to introduce a new Riesling estate if it's not the goods and the top of the tops. This is still the newest one in the last two years and I've tasted a lot. The Koberner has more blue slate and this wine is like a lower Mosel interpretation of a Middle Mosel wine. A lot of the classic Mosel thing you get is from blue slate. So this is by far the most mineral of all the wines that Materne and Schmitt make so naturally I had to offer it as it's shockingly great and in 2017 it's the best value Riesling I've had in ages. Stunning nose. Drop dead. Rich yellow fruits. Lovely racey herbal aromas with profound purity and depth. After some air gorgeous white flowers. Huge minerality that is super penetrating. It's so refined and straight as an arrow. Really just wonderful aromas. The palate is incredibly juicy and rich with jaw dropping purity. Terrific ripeness and a brilliant texture. Oh man is this silly good. Like a cross between Battenfeld Moelsheim and Coche Dury! Wow what an insane texture worth endless depth. Stunning. Beautiful freshness and acidity allied with richness it is just to die for. Incredible palate staining length. Wow oh wow oh wow. This wine is why I opened this company. Exquisite balance and so, so pure. After 45 minutes the minerality takes over. So sappy with incredible dry extract. It has it all. What a wine. — 24 days ago
