On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the youths (mostly college)! Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading one operatic work from WAGNER (Die Walküre, Act I). This is our WAGNER weekend with the BSO, Acts II & III will be performed tomorrow afternoon and evening.

On the nose we have light cedar box, black pepper, ripe blackberries/strawberries and voilet blossom. On the palate we have chalky Pinot fruits, sweet spice notes, earthy/loamy minerals, ripe cherry and blackberry. In a very nice place tonight!

Yesterday’s Wednesday Wine Committee, hosted by @Jeff Meyer , was so educational with fantastic German & Austrian wines. 1 sparkler, 5 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All served blind as usual.

This was more mineral driven than the first red in every way. Not necessarily savory, but very herbal. Almost grassy. Sour and underripe cherry, bitter dark cocoa, medium acidity, and surprisingly tannic on the finish with too many herbs to differentiate against! Complex. I called this Spätburgunder.

Always a multi-day opera with this one:

Day 1: Luden’s cough drops, dill, coriander and pickling spices. Whiff of boiled weeds. And this is a fruit day. And the wine is clean as a whistle, tender and tempting. If you’re an Enderle fan, none of this sounds even remotely odd.
Day 2: Rancid strip mall Peking Duck, MSG straight out of the box, and cabbage boiled in a cheap aluminum pot. Wretched.
Day 3: The most tender, pure and clear cherry aromas and flavors, reminiscent of Tollot-Beaut or Cornu Chorey-les-Beaune of the 1980s. A long, palpable finish of immense, chalky minerals and vibrant acids. Extraordinary.

Terrific nose out of the gates. Sour cherry, floral, pine resin, pine needles, lilacs, gorgeous florals. Cranberry as well. Even pomegranate. Stunning nose. Palate is s refined and ultra elegant with gorgeously sweet fruit. Silky and sweet with unreal fruit and lovely acidity. So silky and sweet with a gossamer like texture. Terrific and ridiculous. What a showing.

So high-toned and crunchy, tart, mineral, very floral. More akin to Cru Beaujolais if you wanted to pigeonhole it. Potpourri, cranberry, blood orange, smoke, dried flowers, pink peppercorn and star anise. Very pretty, love the light frame and puckering acid it has.

Very light and tart on opening, but gained some flesh with air. Somewhat austere, even for Germany, but a worthy foil for turkey.

Two hours decant, still wanting more time in bottle and decanter.

Nose of fresh cranberry, dried strawberry and wet Earth.

Palate is full on dried, yet moist cranberry, orange zest, dried cherry. Medium tannins. This wine is still so young, needing more time (2-3Y?) to open and reveal itself.

24hr Update: Beautiful dried cherry/strawberry aspects, this bottle has years to go still.

Couldn’t resist popping one to try. Has the same wild, earthy, lifted, fragrant beauty as the last vintage although maybe a touch lighter.
