This was everything I want from a good Riesling...when first opened. Light lemon color, very nice acidity. for the life of me I could not place the main fruit component; it could have been pear, apricot, grapefruit, or a mixture, but it went well with the general composition of this wine. It made me want to drink glass after glass. But oddly and about after a hour or two, the wine went completely dumb. I sense it faded. As a result, if you are going to open this wine, consume it right away. CT notes suggest aging should run to 2031. My sense is this is no where accurate and this wine should be consumed while young. But I could be wrong, if the dumb phase the wine went in when opened is a true indicator that I can age. My experience is usually the opposite; a wine is closed open opening but opens gradually when in glass and exposed to air. I rate it according to the first glass taste, and it did everything I could ask from a Riesling.
