Not a wine to cellar, but drinking well right now. A bit soft on the finish, but the aged Bordeaux notes of leather, cedar, earth and dried florals are there, just a lighter presentation. A bit dilute on the finish, but this does provide enjoyment at a reasonable price.

Such a lovely, well balanced, utterly beguiling Riesling, with sharp apples, lime and peaches, slate and a nicely crisp finish. A big hit with Chinese food.

Very nice... has the dark fruit, spice and licorice I would expect from the PS, but without the brutal tannins. A bit of smoke and meatiness to this wine, but in an elegant presentation. Not a lot of length, but good flavors and balance.

Similar to my last note. Lots of fresh, lifted melons and citrus. Not especially deep or long, but a nice refreshing summer wine. Went quite nicely with gazpacho.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): Excellent wine, but suffered a bit in the company it shared tonight. Nice citrus, wet stones and orchard fruits notes, and well balanced, but not quite as "driven" as other Alzingers I've had.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): Another lovely offering from Prager. The mineral notes are very pronouced, with an almost saline quality to it. Chiseled and fine but could use some cellar time to unwind a bit.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): White wine of the night for me. So intense, lively and chalky. Searingly dry and incisive but never austere. The citrus pith, peach and rock dust notes linger on the lip-smackingly bright finish. I could drink a lot of this.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): A bit of an unfocused, fuzzy nose that doesn't quite spark any interest. The palate was good enough, but rather straight forward and soft. Nice enough wine, and I think I liked it more than others, but this particular bottle did lack character.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): I don't need any more producers to collect, but alas I need to start purchasing some of this. A revelation, with such bright, energetic, crunchy and snappy red fruits. There was a nice filigree minerality and a haunting floral note to this svelte little wine. Just so silky and smooth with a bright, crisp, electric finish. So much upside potential. Nice "old school" label as well.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): Beautiful, expressive, aromatic and just drinking great right now. The first few whiffs had a pronounced green pepper note, but this settled in when the earth, leather and minerals notes joined the party. Nicely resolved structure, yet still lively and fresh. What a joy to drink with pizza; I need to try this combination more often.

Pizza and wines @ Salil's (Vernon, CT): Hand carried back from Portugal. The cork started turning as I inserted the worm, which did not bode well. The nose seemed nice enough, with a mature, sweet, woodsy bottle bouquet, but the palate was a different story. Soft, flabby, dried out and oxidized. I suspect the poor seal was the culprit here.

As others have mentioned, this is in a great spot for current enjoyment. Fragrant bouquet of red fruits, dried flowers, smoke and meat. Layered and long with well integrated tannins. This is at the tipping point between evolved flavors and fruity youth. Loved it. UPDATE: On day two, this became quite a bit softer with the oak coming out a bit more than I would like, but still an enjoyable wine.

A clean, harmonious, fruit driven SB, with lovely citrus and orchard fruits and only a hint of herbs. Not a lot of length, but just a great weekday wine with seafood.

This one didn't do it for me. Plain, simple, fruity and straightforward without anything that really grabs me. A bit of sweetness seemed to give me a hint of "cheapness", and at about $20, I expected more.

Simple, yet representative of the genre, and a good price. I like the lemony citrus quality, which keeps this lively, even though the acids are not especially strong. Good for the price.

Very fragrant and expressive bouquet that could be smelled as soon at the cork was popped. Rich and sweet, in the typical brawny style of d'Oliveira. Carmel, dates, chocolate and citrus tang. Very good length. A bit of VA was detected, which did not detract much. A lovely, powerfully rich Boal.

Waited a year to open this and it seems to have held up well. A deeply fruited wine with good balancing acidity. Strawberry and pomegranate. Seems to come and go fairly quickly on the palate, however.
