    March 29, 2008 - Deeper golden color, apricots and honey on the nose, with lots more on the palate. Perhaps starting to oxidize a bit as it has a cheap plastic cork, but still fairly nice to drink. Smoothe, oily, and fairly dry, with light body and just the barest bit of sweetness. Acidity starting to overcome the fruit on the finish.

    August 25, 2007 - This wine had a nice golden color in the glass. Not much on the nose, mostly honey, with a hint of pear. On the palate, very bracing with a minerally finish. Not much fruit coming through on the mid-palate and a bit to acidic on the finish. Overall, good mouthfeel with a touch of honeyed sweetness, but not one of my favorite Rieslings. At this price, will not buy again.

    March 17, 2007 - Lovely rich, sweet, floral nose. Light yellow-green color. The taste is classic Alsatian Riesling: pleasing, smooth blend of green apple, lemon, and slightly unripe pear, with honey and floral and mineral notes for balance. Bracing, tangy, and refreshing, but the whisper of honey and flowers softens things very nicely.

    May 28, 2006 - Tasted at Vino 100. Moderate nose with aromas of apricot, pear and a hint of green apple. Soft, round and medium bodied in the mouth with more of the same fruit with some mineral notes. Finishes with good length, good acidity and a touch of sweetness, spice and tartness.
