7/2/2015 - David_T Likes this wine: 90 points

Pleasant, complex mix of tropical fruit, citrus (particularly tangerine), stone fruit and florals on both the nose and palate. Light minerality and moderate acidity add structure. Medium-bodied and just off-dry, this is certainly drinking well now but should last at least through its 10th birthday.

Agree this is peaking. Nutty, baked apple, a touch of caramel. Dry with well-integrated/well-balanced oak and light acidity. Perhaps a touch oxidized but not in a negative way. Drink now.

NV Kosicek Vineyards Chardonnay

Designated 'inaugural' but no vintage listed. Pleasant pear, melon and spice aromas. The palate is mostly pear and yellow apple with some melon and a hint of herbs. The lack of oak lets the variety shine through though this is simple overall with light acidity. Drink now given its synthetic closure.

Sweeter than the 2010; spicy red fruit aromas. The palate is a little grapey but mostly spicy red raspberry/potpourri. A bit simple but unique and pleasant.

Quite young, fairly closed initially and showing its best on day three when I finished the bottle. Notes of fresh cherry, rhubarb, cola and baking spice. Medium+ acidity and light-medium tannins. 90 now but with much potential to improve.

Dry with pleasant fruit, at if not just past peak now; drink this summer. Aromas of cherries, watermelon and strawberries. The flavors match with bold fruit but adding some gooseberries and their acidity along with a hint of herbs. Lengthy finish. Light acidity and moderate minerality; this is tasty with complexity not common in many rose'.

Delicious with fresh tropical fruit, grilled peaches and pineapple. It's juicy but adds a bit of lanolin which along with its light acidity makes for a complex mouthfeel. Don't hesitate to drink one now but this should age for a few years as well.

Lots of minerality. The nose is wet rocks with a whiff of florals. The palate shows kiwi, florals, melon, wet rocks, and a hint of stone fruit. The texture is slightly oily but crisp with the minerality and medium acidity. I look forward to trying this with a few more years of age.

Clean & pure nose, like rainwater mixed with fresh apples and stone fruit. The palate has layers of stone fruit- peach/apricot/nectarine, along with green apple and sweetened lime juice. The sweetness is noticeable but light, balanced by medium acidity/minerality. Quite tasty, too easy to drink. Young but drinking well now and should last through its 10th birthday if not beyond.

The nose is somewhat muted but the palate is quite nice. It's not youthful but still very fresh. Notes of nectarine, lemon, lime, mango and a bit of petrol. A bit of sweetness balances the pleasant acidity; light mineral notes are there as well. Don't hesitate to open one now though this should continue to age at least through its 20th birthday if not beyond.

Dry, structured with stony minerality and medium+ acidity. Hints of stone fruit, tropical fruit and lime on both the aromas and palate but both are mostly wet rock. Actually surprised the mineral notes aren't more prevalent from a structural standpoint given how prominent they are on the nose and palate. Don't hesitate to open one now but no rush given its structure.

My last and probably my favorite of the three bottles I had. Still showing red cherry/raspberry and herbal notes but the hint of fruity sweetness has integrated well with its light structural notes making a tasty, easy drinking wine.

Aromas of honeysuckle, white flowers and lime. The flavors match with citrus (lemon/lime) taking the forefront, then the floral notes and a tangerine/stone finish. Nice complexity, light minerality, medium+ acid and a medium-length finish. I don't see this gaining much with more age but its structure should let it last quite a while.

Pleasant aromas of nectarine, lime and slate. The palate matches but with lime taking over as the primary flavor. A bit of sweetness with medium acidity/finish and light minerality. Not the most complex riesling but a good introduction to the Mosel and a great qpr.

Aromas of peaches, lime and tangerine. The flavors match but with more of a citrus element. Dry with a pleasant minerality and medium acidity. I'd love to taste this with a hint of sweetness but it's got a nice complexity as is. I'll drink my other bottle after it's got a few more years of age to compare.

Matches my notes/score from a year ago. Better a bit cooler than cellar temp to keep the alcohol in check. I'm curious to see where this goes with a bit more age, I won't open another until next summer.
