    May 28, 2020 - Great, as always. Quite approachable right now, seems already in the preferred plateau. Rich, with equally ample acidity. Med+ finish. Enjoyed watching it evolve over 3 hours open. Like a favorite pair of shoes, so darn comfortable. Now and the next few years. highly recommended

    June 7, 2019 - Lots of apricot pith and stone fruit and white flowers. Long finish. Quite powerful but light on it's feet at the same time. Needs more time though very pleasant already.

    November 25, 2018 - Dry but not austere and beginning to show some age, in a good way. Plenty of Riesling fruit, very good acidity. With Alla, Michelle and AJ, paired with mildly spiced Indian vegetarian dishes, which was a good match.

    January 17, 2018 - Flickinger Tasting at The Casino (Chicago, IL): I preferred the fleshier 2015 to this vintage. Like the 2012 Selektion, I thought that this had a really distracting aldehydic quality. But there was also some nice balance between fruit and acid. This never got waxy or heavy though.

    May 11, 2017 - A bit riper and blowsier than I really like my Riesling from the Wachau, but served cooler a couple of days after opening and everything was much more in balance. Steamed pears and peaches give this quite a fruity aromatic profile. Medium weight but persistent in the mouth, with a meaty undertow that was not quite in place
