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.

Caramel, butterscotch, oak, honey, stone fruits, apricot, and tons of minerality. Medium plus body, medium acidity. Long finish.

Aged white burg for our aged marriage! Round, almonds, lemon tart, salinity, nice balance with many years to go!

This is tasting great. A bunch of fresh grass and hay, lemon curd, some funk, seashells, good acid. Had it with salmon, white bean and artichoke salad, with a Dijon mustard based dressing, went perfectly.

A bit past it’s prime, structural integrity is still pressent though.

My type of chard! Amazing nose of tropical fruit and honeysuckle. Palate is creamy with lemon, more tropical fruits and honey. Excellent and drinking well after open for 30 minutes.
