Fine Rieslings Night
Straw yellow gold color. Superb wine full of young energy. Ideal balance of ripe fruit sweetness and crisp acidity. All sorts of orchard stone fruits and flowers, honey. Great depth and infinite potential!
This Special Edition comes directly from the cellar of the wine maker. It has been released in the market in a tiny quantity after spending 10 years in the bottle.
Strong buy call! Get a case and forget it for a few more years to treat yourself. — 2 years ago
My Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. You know what they say, “bring the heat, bring the sweet!”
On the nose; mellowed petroleum, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, stone fruit, hint of slivered almonds, soft minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers.
The body is full, thick and rich. It’s acidity rounded, softer and really beautiful. Stone fruits; apricots, peaches & yellow nectarines. Ripe green melon, grapefruit pith, very ripe pineapple, more green & some golden apple, white citrus, golden raisins, hint of slivered almonds, far less petroleum on the palate than the nose, soft chalky minerals and yellow lilies with white spring flowers. Delicious on its own and a good pair with Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps. Coravined glass for pairing.
Interesting this sold previously for $143 on Delectable. I didn’t pay anything close to that upon release. $55+ currently on Wine Searcher. I paid around $27 at release.
Coravin bottle from from 13 weeks ago when we made lettuce wraps. I copied over my notes from 13 weeks ago. It hasn’t lost a step. It’s only gotten even softer & a bit creamier.

I succumbed to peer pressure@Alan Weinberg and finally cracked a bottle. Always a beautiful nose and this did not disappoint. Apricots , apples and faint petrol scents battle for supremacy. In the mouth pears , apples,and lime inundate my tastebuds. A little fuller than I expected. — 2 years ago
My 6th and last of this delicious Clare Valley Riesling. Notes of Quince and Paraffin. On the palate mouthfilling Quince Notes with some moreish bitterness. Medium minus acids. Lovely aged Riesling from one of Australia’s best Districts for the varietal. — 2 years ago
Ripe peach and and stone/chalk aromas. Crisp and bright flavors of the same. Still pretty fresh tasting for 10 year old PInot Gris. Not as much “Fino” notes as I’ve encountered in some of his wines in the past — 2 years ago
