    May 31, 2019 - Textbook German riesling at a high level. Acidity may not be as solid and penetrating as the best years, but this is in balance as long as you understand that a bit of residual sugar is par for the course here. Drink over the next decade.

    April 26, 2019 - AP 7, this is a delicious & delightful wine, more harmonious than the first time I had it. Slight sweetness compliments the classic crystalized mineral concentration. Wish I had more!

    April 13, 2019 - In a terrific zone right now for my palate. Only moderately sweet with plenty of fruit concentration and approachability and fresh acids. Good mineral and stone notes. Pairs well with savory dishes.
