Yikes - really overblown stuff; blackberry, licorice, cocoa. Hot and aggressive. Similar palate. Tiring to drink.

I am very much an old world wine drinker and by no means into high octane Tuscan wines. Pergole Torte is one of the handful I actually buy. But this was really awesome. Huge wine for sure but no way was it hot or “sweet”. It certainly had ferocious tannins, and there’s certainly a lot of fruit, but there is an elegance underneath, and definetely a good amount of acid. I think this will be incredible in about 20 years.

Tasted non blind at a wine dinner.

Light yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Tight nose of lime, apricot and talc. Flavors of cherry wasser, lemon and peach. Bright acidity, medium body. Drink or hold. No rush. I'd hold.

I am not opening any Auslese younger than 2002, right now. In mag format, I can’t imagine this being anywhere near ready.

(Rieslingfeier 2014) I have no words. Head-shaking beauty. Perfectly balanced between the sugars and acidity. This wine clearly aged on its balance and not on any specific element. Clean as a whistle, just light golden color. Hard to imagine this sat in bottle for over 40 years. Really, just wow. Prum always surprises me by showing even better than the last mesmerizing bottle I had.
