Spicy Grüner with a lemon nose. Bright and dry. — 25 days ago
Nose has ripe black cherry, blackberry, spring violets, vanilla, melted bittersweet chocolate and dry earth.
Palate has dried black cherry, ripe black currant, ripe plum, wet tree bark, molasses bread and under-ripe cherry, slightly tart with medium tannins.
Bottled under Stelvin closure, opened for slow oxidation 6H, then decanted 2H, more time appreciated. Notes to be updated.
Nose exudes ripe, sappy dark red fruits, just overrunning the Gabriel Glas, light (warm) molasses, brown bread dough and black cherry syrup reduction. Palate is crazy, all prior traits but with a sweet reduction and the acidity actually picked up. Moving this score from 9.4 to 9.5, likely one of the finest red German wines I've ever tasted. An equal to finely aged Burgundy wine. — 2 months ago

Unscrew and pour. Super savory: black cherry, coffee, earth, damp leaf. singed herbs. I tried to entice my in-laws with this (and it was a good pairing for dinner, I swear) but it stood next to a Clos Vougeot, which although from '11 was more forward. Oh well, I enjoyed this. On the palate: loam and black cherry and coffee toast with a soft tannic finish. — a month ago
Distinctive style of Riesling from the old vines of the Hendelberg vineyard. Noticeable skin contact and oak influence make this seem a tad more mature than 2017. Underripe passionfruit, strawberries and cream, and spice with a honeyed, medium bodied palate. $20 — 2 months ago
