Mucho vino at the 15th annual birthday jeebus. (Joe's.): A really beautiful showing as the wine revealed perfect balance, great intensity and length, mature notes as well as freshness. Typically FE with its lime and mineral profile buttressed by stone fruits. It has picked up some petrol notes. The fruit shows nice ripeness and lends a savory quality while the wine remains dry. More, please. Solid A-.
Very nice bottle of Riesling. Excellent acid balance and complexity. Nice structure and density. Color is gold with still a touch of green on the edges. Nose is somewhat muted but some wet slate is coming through with a touch of citrus and petrol. On the palate, apricots, tangerines, apples, and orange zest mix with really spectacular minerality, and even a little chalkiness. Finish is complex and lengthy, and dominated by citrus. Very, very nice wine.
I was a bit worried about this one, good color but some ullage. But shows well, if anything a little tight at first- my favorite sip was a revisit with the cheese! Ripe apples, plenty of petrol, a bit minerally. Full on palate, with a bit of an oily edge. Good acidity (though not really as high as most CFEs). Long, complete at the end of meal. Of course, I'm always a sucker for CFE! A-
(FROM 375) Light golden in color, with a smoky almost kerosene presence, with some lemon zest. RIch and yet finely balanced with great rich, yet lithe texture, if maybe a touch thinning at this age and blle size. Very similar to the Frank with white fruit/ almost bean like vegetables as the primary fruitiness along with lemon rind. Really great mix of texture, acid and flesh. A lovely savory and complicated wine that cuts a clean swath on the palate. Very refreshing. Beautiful. I wish I would hold my younger vintages for 20 years. Not much luck of that tough.
