Very nice! The nose showed talc, diesel, minerals, and many other elements. This was a wonderful, classic German Riesling nose. The palate was thick and lush with nice depth, sweet, tropical fruit, powdered sugar, and lemon bars. Nice and complex, yet it still stayed up front in the mouth. Balanced finish, enough acid to leave you wanting another sip. Excellent wine, and drinking much younger than expected.
Night 1 - PnP. As with prior bottle, cork was moldy at the top, but no impact on the wine.
Muted nose. Very sweet/syrupy with hints of tropical fruit on the palate. Very full mouth feel with little acid and short finish. Can't say I enjoyed this very much and thought wine was better last year.
Night 2 after storing in fridge - Much better as the syrupy sweetness substantially dissipated resulting in a much more interesting wine.
Night 3 after storing in fridge - A slight drop off from night 2, but still much more interesting than night 1.
Not much on the nose for this guy, some musky oak, but that's about it. - Very sweet, fruit forward wine. Lots of tree fruit, heavy on the apple. Had a bit of a sweet/syrupy aftertaste that I didn't necessarily dig. Didn't ruin it for me, I just prefer my Riesling's more on the dry side.
