    February 11, 2019 - Flinty green apple with churned butter on the nose. Juicy and fat mouth of sweet yellow apple fruit finishing with sneaky acidity. The finish is one leaning toward lime and chalk.

    July 11, 2018 - This was a pretty amazing bottle of wine.... not really showing it’s age, nose of lemon, lemon curd, honey, and barn straw. Very good balance with plenty acid to lift and carry. Remaining bottles - no need to rush.

    August 10, 2014 - Really interesting nose but completely lacking in acidity, which ruins it for me.

    January 7, 2014 - Pale yellow. Soft nose of petrol, peach, and maybe a little thyme. Silky in the mouth. Wish it had a sharper acidity. Short finish.

    August 30, 2013 - Definitely rounding nicely into the nearly mature realm of German riesling. Great mosel nose of diesel, peaches, and apricots with a nice herbal freshness to it. The palate had the expected subtle sweetness to it, but remained clear and crystal with some nice acidity. Didn't have much depth, however, and that's what keeps it in the sub-90 range.
