Terrific nose of bright citrus, white flowers, minerals galore, sweet lime as well. Smells open unlike many 15’s I’ve had recently. Chewy and dense with nice richness and very generous. Fleshy citrus and peach. Very complex and terrific mouthfeel. Finished with lovely citrus rind note. Very round but perfect acids. Terrific — 4 days ago

From half bottle, good but not great. Maybe just a slightly less great btl. — 11 days ago

Wachenheimer Gerümpel PC Riesling 1998

Very aromatic with yellow plums, Mirabelle, apricots in honey... a touch of thyme. Sweet in the nose, initially sweet on the palate but with the acidity shining and balancing everything amazingly. Honey, lemons, a touch of caramel, tea like aftertaste. Great complexity and amazing length.
From magnum.

Soft on the mid palate, great silkiness and texture. Firm, ripe and delicate with fresh stony fruit character and lingering mineral accent. — 7 days ago

Pfalz Dry Riesling 2016

Delightfully crisp w some light minerality and a blast of lime acidity that calmed a bit as it warmed closer to room temp. Faint touch of pear and some green herbaceousness. Really great! — 14 days ago

Pfalz Trocken Pinot Noir 2016

Plum & raspberry, herby whiff and (nice) wood accents. Light on the palate but with good grip. Great structure, nice juicy, polished tannins, cool acidity. This is clearly more Burgundian than Spätburgundian. And very, very nice. A drinking delight already now, but will improve. — 7 days ago

B Estate Pfalz Pinot Noir 2011

Mon dieu! This wine has an incredibly mineral-flushed nose, almost minty from all the whetstony chloride-alkaline minerals! Light ruby slightly hazy in color; medium-high acids and fine tannins, red fruit-dominated and perhaps a bit disappointing on the finish. Try in 3-5 years?! Excellent value at 10 USD for a half bottle! — 15 days ago

Gorgeous nose of citrus, honey, mineral, intense mineral, wow, floral, madarin, tangelo. Very complex nose. Rich, grippy and very energetic. Pure and very clean. Elegant and very pure. Lovely mineral finesse and grip on the finish. Juicy and really finely etched acid. Lovely lovely lovely. Deep and really elegant. — 19 days ago

Ungeheuer GG Riesling 2015

Started with lemon-lime candy, peaches and apricots on the nose and the palate. Super lush. Became more tropical as it opened up--like tropical bubblegum, mango and passionfruit, and a touch of honey. Acidity was ripping, and the bit of RS enhanced everything perfectly. Stunning wine. — 5 months ago
