    July 10, 2021 - Delicious. At a great intersection of youthful charm and complexity from age.

    January 30, 2021 - Perfect balance of sugar, acid, and richness. Very light on its feet; delightful.

    December 8, 2020 - Oh yea this is on tonight. Dancingly light but rich and sweetly flavored with ripe yellow stone fruit and some tropical notes. Great acidity and a silky, light texture.

  • brooklynguy Likes this wine:

    November 10, 2020 - This bottle showed more advanced than I expected based on my last experience in 2017. Golden in color. Mellow orchard fruit and wet rock on the complex and lovely nose. Palate shows great balance and acidity, the lush sweet apricot balanced by a sapid bitter minerality. Nothing but joy here.

    May 4, 2020 - Willi Schaefer is my very own Riesling hero. I have bought several of his Kabinett and spatlese from various vintages and have never been less than delighted. On this occasion it turned up a notch to Wonderful; exciting; concentrated and just beautiful. I am pretty sure it will age beautifully but it was so lovely now, it is difficult to resist. Thank you Willi!
