  • (From 375ml) I should absolutely love this. I love the winemaker. I love the vineyard. In fact, I love the nose of this 14k gold colored wine. Pears, berries and rocks on the nose - terrific. The palate is creamy and chalk full of fruit and minerals. The issue here is that everything falls off quickly ... And I mean quickly. One of the great things I love about German Riesling is the complexity and depth. This has great initial complexity and then ...A tough one to score for what is there is fantastic. Maybe more time is needed. (90)

  • WOW..ripe, clean and pure. The word that came to mind is "refreshing" which you generally don't get from Auslese. White flowers and tropical fruits. This was a real treat.

  • Chicago ♥ Dönnhoff (Chicago, IL): #15-06, 7.5% abv. From full bottle, believe it or not. This wine really embodies that ethereal quality that Terry Theise mentions in his descriptions of Doennhoff. There are sweet white peaches and pineapples here, lifted by what I can only call acidity ex machina. Needless to say, this is quite young and there's still plenty of potential. It will be very interesting to see how this unwinds.

  • '05 and '06 side by side. A fun comparison, the '05 was more elegant and vibrant, the '06 much weightier and intense. Really a stylistic preference. The '05 is drinking younger, the '06 starting to show visual signs of age. Obviously both will go much, much longer, though fine to drink now.

  • Completely unexciting. Perhaps mildly corked?
