Admittedly, this bottle looks like something you would kill a vampire with. But Lord, the contents couldn't be a greater contrast to the blackened wax cork, blood red estate image, and otherworldly silver script--as inside lives a bright, fresh, acidic, a blindingly mineral wine, that almost tastes of ground wet blue slate. Truly a marvelous wine, and a ravishingly delicious partner for a wide swath of foods. 2010 acid-level gymnastic brilliance--the sugar feels almost palpable, but the acid is so intense it finishes decidedly dry and mineral, as if you dozed off next to a stone cutting machine and woke up with a mouth full of stone dust. Just lovely. Peaches for days, but a tactile twist in the cheeks' interior as the acid gets to work on the long finish.
Vivid aromatics ripe tangerine citrus, apple cinnamon, white flowers, and green tea. The palate explodes but remains well balanced, boasting a gorgeous melange of tropic fruits buffered by fantastic slate minerals and citric acidity. The finish is particularly exciting, with endlessly changing lemon/lime/tangerine, fresh green herbs, and fresh cut grass. A wonderful young riesling, with plenty of promise in the cellar. R&M92
