    March 1, 2019 - Tooch Going Away Dinner (TDS): Nice mature white fruit, stone and smoke aromatics. Initially taste is quite flavorful, with excellent balance. Fades rather sharply on the palate.

    March 1, 2019 - A farewell to Tooch (Chicago, IL): #28-82. We were all surprised at how sweet this bottle was, especially given the level and the age. But there it was, a nice dose of immediate sweetness. Unfortunately, I don't think this bottle was in the greatest shape, as everything seemed to fall off pretty rapidly after the attack. There were all the expected elements from a bottle of Prüm, but they seemed overall attenuated. Nonetheless, there's still plenty to like here.

    March 30, 2013 - A private lunch (Restaurant Nils Henkel **, Schlosshotel Lerbach, Bergisch-Gladbach, Germany): AP 1 88 - a late release. Needs a little time to open up after twenty-five years in the bottle - the last glass was clearly the best. Only off-dry by now but wonderfully fresh and elegant, hardly showing its age and certainly not tired, floral and slatey nose with a sea-breeze; Sonnenuhr-peach, candied lemon and wax on the palate, energetic and intense; very good length. Perfectly balanced and at ease with itself.

    February 15, 2013 - Rieslingfeier - Collector's Dinner (Eleven Madison Park, NYC): The sense of weightlessness and the delicate touch here are hard to describe. Elegant would be an understatement; this just seems to float on the palate with gentle Mosel fruit, lemon cream, mature smoky notes and higher toned herbal elements all coming together harmoniously, and conveyed with such precision and focus. The presence and length here are remarkable - this is a wine that stays with you long after each sip. Truly amazing Kabinett.
