Barrel X Saar Feinherb Riesling 2016

Checking in on this one tonight.

Nose has under-ripe peach, tart green apple with the wet mineral notes on high alert.
Palate has clementine peel, under-ripe tangerine and (light) wet slate.

This halbtrocken seems a little ackward tonight, maybe better tomorrow, or in a few more years...

Ayler Kupp Schonfels Faß 11 Riesling 2016

My first Lauer GG, this is everything I love about his wines compacted like a crushed car into something so dense as to be almost unknowable. Would be curious to know how these drink decades beyond. — 18 days ago

Point Rouge Chardonnay 2012

9.5

Lots of fun bottles were popped at Al’s hosting this past weekend for his birthday celebration. All were served blind. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 6 reds and 1 dessert wine.

This was en mag. WOW. Slightly cloudy in the glass. My first guess when looking at it was Marcassin, but it wasn’t waxy enough on the palate. Smelled of rich lemon cream, powdered lemon bars and juicy fruit (that should always be my key to guessing PM). A powerhouse on the palate with juicy tropical fruits, marshmallow, and sweet marzipan. Gorgeous stuff. I called this 2012 Aubert Ritchie.

Much better day 2 with petrol-y complex aromatics layering and more prominent acid. — 16 hours ago

Reserve 84 Riesling 1984

Stunningly beautiful wine, intensely perfumed with notes of winter hay, beeswax, irises, key lime, and yellow apples. Honeyed, but not sweet with a mineral core and clean slate finish that goes on for days! Perfect ex-cellar bottle, need to buy more ASAP =) — 8 days ago

Peter Dipoli

Iugum Alto Adige Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

And they say its takes two to tango, this rarity from the great Peter Dipoli sure is something to spend the night with.
Still remarkably fresh in its primary fruit with one foot entering its drier stage embedding its very sophisticated and complex tertiary character of truffles, forrest floor, coffee, mint chocolate and spice. The palate flows with such an elegant posture, with a good portion very fine powdery tannins that holds the wine throughout and developing, complex finish.

'L'Esprit des Pavots' Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

This has been decanted and open a while, so on top of the aging, it’s quite soft. Delicate & fruit-forward. Juicy notes of fresh plum, raspberry, strawberry, blackberry, fig, & cranberry. Pure juice. Soft tannins. Cocoa nibs on the finish. Subtle leather on the finish. Elegant wine. — 3 days ago

Senior Faß 6 Ayler Riesling 2018

Bright acidity, mineral, grapefruit. Just ever so slightly off dry. Refreshing aperitif or excellent as a food wine. — 8 days ago

Kupp Faß 18 Großes Gewächs Riesling 2041

Bloody gorgeous. Big and complex and fruity and yet exquisitely balanced, tastes way more expensive than it is, at least here at the ever reasonable Noble Rot. — 21 days ago

9.3

En mag. Probably the most difficult wine of the night to identify. Hardly anyone even got close to calling this cab. I was leaning Grenache or ripe vintage burgundy as I thought I was detecting a bit of whole cluster usage due to the lifted profile and stemmy/spice red fruit notes. Yet by the end of the night, the structure beefed up and the spice turned more sweet. Lovely cherry liqueur, sandalwood, baking spices and baked red fruited pie notes.
