  • A very (mostly) German 4th of July (Tank Noodles, Chicago IL): Nose: The nose is extremely well balanced with green apples, quince, sweet peaches, nectarines, and some bits of honey. There is a layering to the tones with excellent definition too.

    Taste: Full bodied with medium acidity. The feel is plush and sexy with green apples, sweet peaches, nectarines, and pears and quince. There is a lot of depth to this with a fatness at the same time.

    Overall: This was fantastic stuff. I wished there was more than a half bottle to drink from, but that's what makes the fleeting moments more fun. This was beautiful and a real treat.

  • 14 years on this is starting to show a little maturity. The color is a rich gold. The ripe peach and apple aromas have been joined by honey, smoke, spice and a fall, leafy richness. Never a wine to show an acid streak, it is held together with an almost secret structure, that only reveals itself on the mineral tinged finish. This is inviting wine-inviting the next sip and inviting the next glass.

  • From 375. Popped and poured. Color straw. Nose started out reticent but then showed brilliant quince, pineapple, and under ripe peaches. This oozes across the palate, seeming a bit flabby at first but then the acids sweep through and propel the mouth coating finish for at least a minute. This intensity should allow this to keep improving for quite awhile I think. Really nice.

  • Partying Like It's 1999 (Tabard Inn - Washington, DC): Apples and pears galore on the nose and palate of this Auslese! Additionally, wonderful spring flowers resonate for me along with some apricots and white peaches. Aside from the lush fruit, there was a really nice minerality to this...almost like licking a chalk board that has peach juice on it. Had this with some key lime pie and the combination was great!

  • A remarkably different showing than I experienced a couple of years ago, where it was dominated by a lot of botrytis and honey. This bottle (AP#14 again) is all about clarity and freshness; a spectrum of orchard fruits and flowers in fall conveyed with amazing purity and a lightness of touch that makes it incredibly easy and refreshing to drink. Outstanding Riesling.
