Sampled 12/20/10. There is petrol on the nose and then there is overwhelming creosote. This is the latter. On the palate the wine is semi-sweet with nuanced flowers, tropical fruits and a hint of petrol. Not my kind of wine, although I do appreciate its ability to age.
EWG Riesling and Pinot at Yujean Kang's (Yujean Kang's, Pasadena, CA): This was AP#6. The nose starts of pretty musty but that fades leaving some petrol and minerals. Big and expressive still with a clean sweet tart character. I was surprised at how big this showed still and it was great to taste it next to the 02. Very similar in flavor though they expressed themselves somewhat differently. Very good.
Yu Jean Kang’s: This was great stuff--still very alive with mushrooms nuances, grt mineral aspect, and a bit of frt. Excellent tinglyslate notes, but not as much a’s as the Simon and the Bollig. Nice character and complexity, grt wine I’d like to drink. maybe 91 bc of a’s, but minor point. Rick and David
