Community Tasting Notes (5) Avg Score: 93 points

  • – TN is from Day 3 –
    – AP #: 2 576 511 26 01 –

    NOSE: strong diesel; hint of botrytis; honey and pineapple; assertive, but not brash.

    BODY: rich golden yellow color; medium-full bodied.

    TASTE: moderately powerful flavor; woodsy spice; ripe tropical fruits; a bit of botrytis; light for an Auslese, but has incredible focus, and is well-balanced with wonderful acidity; not nearly as lively now, 44 hours after opening, as it was the first couple hours after popping the cork; very short finish; 7.5% alc.; certainly not a whack-you-over-the-head Auslese, but I enjoyed this wine a lot. Gut impression score: low 90's.

  • Others liked this better than me tonight -the wine was very shut down aromatically and while the flavors were good overall, my impression was more of a fat wine lacking some of the verve and precision i get from this wine in other vintages. I wanted to try it again but the bottle was empty.

  • Excellent wine. The nose has nice peach ntoes and the petroleum is starting to set in. This seems a little lighter than the 2005 in some ways, and the rich flavors are a little more subtle. However, there is still excellent apricot and citrus flavor along with wonderful acidity. The finish is clean with lingering fruit and a slight dusty flavor. The finish didn't last quite as long as I expected, but it's still very nice.

  • The Wine Summit; 6/2/2006-6/3/2006 (The Post Hotel in Lake Louise): Attractive light straw in color – clear and clean in the glass; typical honeyed Riesling aromas with floral overtones; fresh – good thrust of acidity; sweet fruit but offset with this refreshing acidity; finishes with the desire to have another sip. Excellent !

  • Very nice. Sweet nose with bountiful peach, fig, and botrytis. Thick, juicy body with a bit of a mineral edge to it. Nice acidity balances the sweet peach fuzz, pineapple, mango, and almond. Very enjoyable and probably will be even better 10 years down the road. I will be on the lookout for more.
