RIESLING PERLMUTT 2018

-Rugged Riesling-

DAY 1
Served with the Vinloq System
👀Dark yellow golden honey. Unfiltered
👃Sour citrus, wax, savory herbs with tea & mint
👅Honeyed, candied stone fruit. Ripe apples. Very herbal with pronounced acidity. Salty. The finish is dry, long, & delicious
So interesting. So expressive. Superb clarity. Singular flavor profile likely due to botrytis and long elevage. Just…wow

The remaining wine was Slow Decanted with Vinloq & refrigeration

Sampled this on 2 more occasions

DAY 15
👃Bold, distinctive & precise
👅Probably would not guess riesling in a blind tasting. Tea, cognac & sherry all make appearances. Bruised/ripe apple is only perceived sweetness
Virtually unchanged in 15 days. Feels very sturdy. Probably would be an interesting wine to cellar.

Jakob Tennstedt is a new winemaker in the Mosel. He biodynamically farms 50-100 year old vines he restored on steep blue slate terraces. This wine was so laborius to make that he will not do it again. I am glad I was able to try it this time and it gives me motivation to try his other wines🥂

Secret Door Winery JML Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, California

It's time for my
#FridayCabernetfix.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is drinking very nicely now.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, tobacco, vanilla, spices, chocolates, dark coffee and vegetables.

Dry and fruit forward. Big, yet elegant with a soft mouthfeel.

Long finish with fine grained tannins.

A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years.

Nicely balanced, elegant and smooth. Will be interesting to try it again in 5 years.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up (4 hours).

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food too. Will pair nicely with barbecue meats like a big piece of steak. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.

14% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$65.

Pergole Sparse Bosco Blend 2019

Mit 14 nicht der billige Jakob, schöner, etwas ungewöhnlicher Wein mit leichten Anklängen an ein großes Holzfass, aber deswegen ja auch gekauft — 6 months ago

Sekt Brut Riesling 2018

Love this crisp bouquet, a cold night, still. The stars pristine sharp dots draping the sky. Mineral driven. Apples.

Bracing. Sharp. Energetic acidity with legs, carrying a savory quality through the mid.

Zip and chew. Something to sip and think.

Lenchen Auslese Riesling 2018

I feel like this was nice but not as interesting as expected . That’s a disappointment at this price point. I have another and will age it to see if that’s the trick. — 4 months ago

Rheinschiefer Trocken Riesling 2019

Cool, crisp, oozing with slatey, steely minerality. Ripe lemons, limes, underripe mango, a touch of star fruit.
On the palate this is pure energy, zippy acidity, salty minerality, so pure & focused. Yet there’s a hint of creaminess on the palate, adding a velvety touch to the Rheingau austerity. Delicious stuff!
This is so good!!
And so drinkable this young, while the GG wait for their time.

Neuenahrer Schieferlay Alte Reben Trocken Spätburgunder 2012

Noch hohe Säure trotz langer Lagerung, fein im PLV für 12, nicht für die bezahlten 16...
Wirkt einfach nicht rund.
Nachtrag: 2 Tage im Dekanter und deutlich angenehmer.
