January 24, 2016 - this was wonderful. Crystalline and pure. White orchard fruit, lychee, mint and stone. Multilayered with razor sharp acidity. Lots going on but very light on its feet. Reminded me a bit of zilikin. Wow.

September 5, 2014 - Well balanced but not complex. Concentrated but primary, and this may well improve. Definitely Auslese level sweetness. Good but not special.
July 7, 2013 - Excellent value for what this cost me ($18), but not an excellent Auslese. Nice depth of fruit, but cloying and without the acidity to keep this lively.
December 24, 2011 - Intense, pure primary nose, slate and a mix of green and tropical fruits. Incredible length, still full of primary fruit and bursting with energy. Very delicious but with ohh so much more to give.
December 8, 2010 - This is going to be very special down the road. Incredible concentration and precision, that I have not encountered in a young riesling. This is bursting with energy, but is very primary - didn't really move much in two nights. Extremely pleasing today, but better in 5-10 years. 93+++
