  • Dead, Dante's, Wine (Chicago, IL): #09-06, 8.5% abv. Lots of sweet fruit density on the nose and palate here. Good focus on the palate as well, with some nice sweet apple flavours. I think the acidity does come off a touch light, and if anything, I'm not too thrilled that this is developing a bit of creaminess that takes the edge off of the relatively low acidity (for a riesling, which means this still sits in a relatively high-acid category). I suppose what I'm saying is that the sugar and fruit seems to be dominating over the remaining acidity. Still, this is in a good place right now and makes for a pretty damn tasty bottle of Spatlese nonetheless. It will be interesting to see how this one changes as a few more years pass.

  • Nose: The nose is showing some maturity with red apples, a touch of petrol, quince, peach, and some mineral tones.

    Taste: Medium bodied with crisp medium/high acidity. There is nice weight on the mid-palate with red and green apples, peaches, some petrol, and minerals.

    Overall: This is showing beautifully. It has some maturity, but still has some freshness to it.

  • Classic Nahe Spätlese of very fine quality. The warm 2005 vintage puts the fruit in a riper register than usual (peach, mango, sweet blackcurrant) but suffers only very little in tension or energy. Elegantly sweet palate, seamless. Develops well over four days in the fridge. Drinking well, but time in hand.
