    January 24, 2013 - Weston 3220's notes on this wine were spot on. Golden yellow. Slate and lychee nose. Delicious palate of peach, honey and minerals. Balanced sweeness with nice acidity and a hint of petrol. Perfect with great spicy and hot sechuan fare at Han Dynasty in Philly. Fabulous combination.

    January 16, 2012 - My notes may not due this wine justice, as they seem to lacking in the profile of the fruit and jsut how good it is

    med+intensity on the nose some nice tropical fruits with a dash of petrol, with med dry sweetness, high acid, full body, meD+ intensity, long finish. Has that delicious golden fruit that only riesling can do, some spice

    conc: Pretty awesome, seamless, together, and rich

    December 6, 2011 - Good, semi-dry, nice acidity, has a very long life ahead. Minerality is very present. Enjoyed.
