Interesting discussion over this wine last night. Four of us smelled a skunk / weed smell that persisted throughout the night. There was minerality and quite a bit. Also, the palate didn’t really match the nose. To me, awkward. A few others really enjoyed it.

Damn, that was delicious. Either talk to your Rosenthal rep, or ask your local wine shop to find this from Rosenthal, there is definitely some on the east coast. Smokin good. Probably some bottle variation but this cork was pristine and the wine was in great shape.

Pickled pear and caramel. Developed but not over the hill. Very nice! Perfect pairing for homemade carbonara.

Elegant, creamy, and full of fruit. Pears and apples and figs, oh my! Chard haters, suck it. This is a red wine drinkers white wine.

Great citrus noise with a touch of honey and creaminess on the palate.
