Tasted blind. Medium gold, heavy in the glass. Notes of apricot, lemon, sweet kiwi, stone, petrol and some honey. While this has a flamboyant nose, it's a bit thin and dry in the mouth. Sneaky acidity. Very floral.

Lush. Peaches and sizzling minerality. A very plush and open middle. Expansive ripe fruit and good acidity. In a great place but a long time ahead

Very pure. Light and precise but with a lovely enveloping sweet midpalate. Great balancing acidity and complexity. A really classy wine.

A showy nose that is a head fake to a palate that is perfectly balanced and reserved . I think this bottle needs to rest.

Easy to see the big time potential here, powerful but filigreed

This, along with the '90 (squirreled away before I could get a shot) are far and away the most bewitching, complex, delightful Riesling I've ever had. As my table mate said, wine like this has a self defense mechanism. After smelling it you pause to consider. This happens again and again and you almost forget to drink (I didn't forget) #rieslingfeier
