1998 Müller-Catoir Haardter Mandelring Scheurebe Spätlese

Pfalz more

12/24/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 91 points

AP#21-99. The Lobster Dinner with Mom, Bryan & Michele. 5 people. 5 lobsters totaling just over 17 pounds. Sheer decadence! Light yellow in color, this. Wine was a winner as always. Opening with its usual flamboyant and tropical nose as soon as the cork is pulled. Showing signs of development but no signs of decline. Still loaded with fruit and excellent acidity. 50+13+12+8+8=91

2001 Joh. Jos. Prüm Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Kabinett

Mosel Saar Ruwer more

12/21/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 94 points

AP #26-02. Dinner at Bonefish with Mom. I wanted to open an '01 to see how they were developing. I have an abundance of '01 Prum but have not had one for at least 5-8 years as I feel they will be true classics given the proper aging. Kabinett seemed the right place to start. Surprisingly spritzy for a 14 year old wine, even Prum. Classic Sonnenuhr aromas jump out of the glass. Still tasting young but beginning to develop. Seems like more time will give these '01s the inner mouth glow of burnished fruit that the '90s are currently experiencing. 50+14+13+8.5+8.5=94

Halloween party at Jean & Roy's house. My Peter Gabriel "Watcher Of The Skies" costume took first place in the voting and had this been a wine event this would surely be wine of the night. Medium gold in the glass, this remains the quintessential VT Riesling. Seemingly ageless, this has lost some baby fat in the sugar department but has always been a very balanced wine. Several decades ahead of happy drinking for this one. 15+14+14+9.5+9.5=97

Dinner at home with Bryan & Michelle. Very typical Rangen with lots of earthy, peaty notes. As expected for this wine. Rich and big on the nose and relatively dry and acidic on the palate and long finish. Plenty of life ahead for this wine. 50+13+13+9+9=94

1989 Müller-Catoir Haardter Mandelring Scheurebe Spätlese halbtrocken

Pfalz more

10/17/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 91 points

AP #11-90. Dark yellow color. Nose screams out MC Scheurebe with loads of wild tropical fruits. On the palate the halbtrocken nature of the wine as it hits the palate like a Spatlese but quickly starts to dry out a little. Finish is nearly endless with terrific acidity of the green apple and lime varieties. Will drink very well for another 5 years minimum but that probably only matters to me as the 3 remaining bottles listed in CellarTracker overall inventory are in my cellar! 50+13+12+8+8.5=91.5

With a wonderful Erev Rosh Hashana meal at home. Deep, rich copper in color, this wine is always a stunner but tonight it seemed to kick things up a notch. The meal called for something earthy but also something with some sweetness to balance the small amount of siracha used as part of cooking the chicken. I said this to Dena and we looked at each other and at the same time said Rangen Pinot Gris VT! Lots of earthy, peaty notes screaming Rangen. Sweet fruit on the palate and particularly on the never ending finish. Beautifully balanced. A real treat. 50+14+15+9.5+9.5=98

1992 Müller-Catoir Mußbacher Eselshaut Riesling Beerenauslese

Pfalz more

8/9/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 98 points

AP #12-93. From 375ml. Dark gold to Amber in color, this wine was phenomenal. Loaded with aromas and flavors of quince, peach, oranges, caramel-coated green apples, tropical fruits and manuka honey. Clearly a dessert wine but plenty of acidity to wash it off the palate and leave an extremely long glow in the mouth that added a strong note of butterscotch. One of the finest dessert wines I've had and that says an lot given my penchant for sweet wines. Drinking on a perfect plateau right now but should easily drink very well for another 2-3 decades. 50+15+14+9.5+9.5=98

Dinner at Gravy with Bryan & Michelle. I did not see the cork as the waiter pulled it but would have liked to see if it was in bad shape as this was not a good showing for this wine. A very ponderous wine with resolved tannins and some rose aromas but not much else. Not a bad wine but not what one expects from Giacosa. Hopefully just an off bottle as it is the first of a case. 50+11+11+7+7=86

Dinner at home with mom. Decanted for about 3 hours which it seemed to need. Beautiful nose and palate of roses and leather. Seems to have mostly shed its tannins but there is still good fruit. Probably best drunk in the next 5-10 years but I still recommend decanting though I know that seems a contradiction. 50+13+12+8+8=91

2000 Zind-Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain Vendange Tardive

Alsace Grand Cru Gewürztraminer more

7/13/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 94 points

Dinner at Bida Manda with Mom. Deep Amber in color. This bottling has always been spectacular but oddly bottles seem to vary as to whether the Rangen or Gewurz characteristics come to the front. Tonight it was Gewurz first and Rangen second. Beautiful spice and lychee mix with Rangen peat and minerality. While certainly not dry the very high level of residual sugar is well concealed and washed off the palate by high acid levels. A bit of Gewurz roughness on the palate ( a plus ). This may be entering a slightly muted phase from which it will certainly emerge or maybe this bottle is just a little shy compared to previous bottles. This is a very relative statement as this is a very flamboyant wine even with what I'm calling muted. I think I'll keep my hands off of these for 5 years and drink other vintages but do I have the discipline to do so??? 50+14+13+8.5+8.5=94

2002 Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive

Alsace more

7/12/2015 - JeffGMorris Likes this wine: 93 points

Light to medium yellow in the glass, I wanted to check in on this and while it was delicious it's time to go back to drinking older vintages while this very young tasting wine will be even better with time. Filled with a white flower perfume and great minerality with Jebsal terroir written all over it. Medium sweetness but plenty of acid to balance. Is this the second coming of the incredible 1989? Time will tell! 50+13+13+8.5+8.5=93+(+?)

Acme Annual Heirloom Tomato Dinner with Steve, Barb & Mom. AP #1-92. Medium yellow in the glass with an effusive nose of green apples and yellow fruits. All burnished fruit and minerality on the palate. In an absolutely perfect place right now but should plateau for two or three more decades. Sensation of fruit floating on the palate. Long peacocks tail finish that reveals more and more as it goes. Wonderful with the tomato plate appetizer. 50+14+15+9+9=97

Acme Annual Heirloom Tomato Dinner with Steve, Barb & Mom. From 375ml. Medium Amber in color, this wine is still relatively unevolved ( no surprise but I wanted to open one ) but still reveals plenty. A powerful wine that could not be mistaken for being from any other vineyard. Very strong minerality dominates with yellow fruits also making a presence. High acidity balances the 160 g/l residual sugar very well and washes the wine off the palate leaving a long and very satisfying finish. This is still a baby at age 17, even from a 375ml, but plenty enjoyable to drink now or for the next 50 years. 50+14+14+9+9=96+

Decanted for 4 hours and then rebottled for 3 days. Drank with an amazing Cowboy Ribeye. Effusive aromas of dark berries followed by a smooth but young palate with berries, bramble and the glycerol mouthfeel of great Grenache. Long finish and a long life ahead. 50+14+14+9+9=96(+?)
