 Tasted by Cryptical11 on 12/25/2014: Way better than lungful girl (1070 views)
 Tasted by ddahl on 8/24/2014 & rated 91 points: Ripe crisp green apple flavor, sweet but not overpowering. Aged 2 years added color and sugars. (1992 views)
 Tasted by Redrunners on 10/1/2013 & rated 87 points: Solid inexpensive quaffer for Asian or spicy food.

A little simple, moderate acidity and not too sweet.

Enjoyed it more than many of the overly sweet Rieslings at this price point (4568 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 9/21/2013 & rated 87 points: A good vintage for this value wine, with bracing acidity and healthy fruit. This is a bit simple and light, but at the price offered it makes a nice foil for a bit of weekday Asian cuisine. (4630 views)
 Tasted by David_T on 8/8/2013 & rated 89 points: This may have lost a touch of freshness from a year ago but is aging beautifully especially for a sub-$9 wine. Impossible to beat for the price. Overall my notes match those from a year ago with the wine featuring citrus fruits and good acidity overall. I look forward to seeing where this continues to go with time- it's drinking well now but no hurry either. (4978 views)
 Tasted by cobystilp on 7/28/2013 & rated 88 points: Solid. Well-made Riesling. Good QPR. (4363 views)
 Tasted by crispino on 6/22/2013 & rated 83 points: Light, and a little sweeter than the semi-dry Rieslings I have grown to like. Still some lip-smacking acidity here, and definitely a good choice as a starter wine, but not quite as versatile with the apps. (3976 views)
 Tasted by WOOF Diva on 6/8/2013 & rated 87 points: Mineral, lemon pear, sweeter taste Great deck wine. (2240 views)
 Tasted by dkstar1 on 5/15/2013 & rated 86 points: Better than '11 vintage. Minerally, pear, honey. Great QPR. (2435 views)
 Tasted by Vervelb on 3/29/2013 & rated 88 points: Tasty, simple, but balanced Riesling, pear and citrus. Slightly sweet with nice acidity. (2527 views)
 Tasted by Champagneinhand on 3/29/2013: great qpr riesling for weekday drinking. pitted fruit, apples citrus acid and good mineral. (3063 views)
 Tasted by RobertVitello on 3/10/2013 & rated 87 points: Balanced, although somewhat on the sweeter side of middle. Very nice green pear flavor. (2453 views)
 Tasted by RayOB on 2/27/2013 & rated 90 points: Drank in Mexico
Lots of minerality and citrus on the nose. Great balance with not too much acidity or sweetness, Medium length.
Amazing value (2502 views)
 Tasted by cobystilp on 2/12/2013 & rated 87 points: Perfectly quaffable for the price. Great QPR. (2685 views)
 Tasted by wtianseter on 1/31/2013 & rated 85 points: The wine is a light straw color. Nose is minerally and acidic with spicy fruit. When the bottle wa opened a good bit of pressure was released and when the inital glass was poured there was significant effervescence. The taste showed a nice bright fruity flavor and a lot of acid; along with the effervescence that acicity was out of balance. The wine was tasty and a good wine but not my favorite style. It could have been much nicer without the fizz. (2472 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 1/12/2013 & rated 85 points: Disappointing, considering the many positive notes. Probably has seen better days. (2905 views)
 Tasted by ddahl on 1/1/2013 & rated 88 points: Excellent value. Sweet and smooth with pear and green apples. Perfect for everyday. (2927 views)
 Tasted by jdrago on 12/16/2012 & rated 87 points: Aromas of white flowers. Had a creamy mouth feel; bright; citrus tasting; off dry; taste of lime zest; bananas and blue popsicle. Needs food. Paired well with a dish of cod fish; bacon and Brussels sprouts. The wine complimented the bitterness and saltiness of the dish. Would pair well with Thai food or similar flavored foods. (3311 views)
 Tasted by Billigan on 12/5/2012 & rated 87 points: My last 2010 bottle, and it proved to be an especially balanced and refreshing vintage for the Dr. L. In the QPR hall of fame, Dr. L truly stands alone, as the most affordable means to imbibe a classically Mosel riesling. (3445 views)
 Tasted by astroman on 12/4/2012: Decent for this price. (3149 views)
 Tasted by mdeckerski on 12/4/2012 & rated 88 points: Sweet, Tangy refreshing according to my wife. She likes would buy again. (2983 views)
 Tasted by the godfather on 11/19/2012: fun (3217 views)
 Tasted by the godfather on 11/16/2012: killer (3017 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 11/10/2012 & rated 87 points: Another nice bottle. All the classic apple and cirtus flavors that say "Mosel", but without much slate. Delicious low end bottling without much depth or complexity, but this is what I would expect at the price point (maybe a little more than I would expect). The 2010 acidity really keeps this lively. (3220 views)
 Tasted by christophee on 11/8/2012 & rated 84 points: Clear and lite in the glass. Full nose of lime, herbs, pith, Fuji apple, terpene, honey and white peach. Lite body and pithy with grapefruit, tangerine, zest, herbs and apple on the palate. Structured acidity and flinty minerals. Fruit isn't giving enough. Short finish. (3043 views)

Mosel Saar Ruwer

Starting in 2007 the German wine authorities have changed labeling laws to rename all of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wines to just "Mosel." This puts this and other database driven sites in a difficult spot, as millions of old wine label reflect the former labeling. As described here, CellarTracker has elected to remain with the old labeling for a number of years to avoid confusion. At some point we will switch over to just "Mosel" but not for a few years at least.
