    November 14, 2018 - Wafting aromas of creosote bush, preserved lemon, acacia flowers, and peach. Full on the palate with liquid golden sweet fruit, rich mellow lift at the back into a lovely acid train. Voluptuous and racy. Excellent with mapo doufu. 50 + 17 + 18 + 9 = 94.

    March 31, 2015 - This is classical Saar Riesling that has a distinct aroma and flavor of green apples and a finish that is like licking cold, wet steel. Riveting stuff.

    January 31, 2015 - Rieslingfeier Riesling Crawl (New York City, NY): A pleasant and lithe Kabinett, with some fruit and great freshness, though this definitely veers a bit too far towards the acidic side.
