    May 23, 2009 - Drinking well, with good equilibrium. Probably my best bottle.

    November 19, 2007 - Unbelievable value - lighting was not great but color was far lighter than expected - looked and tasted quite young with a long future ahead. About the sweetness level of a Spatlese (perhaps a borderline Auslese) - decent acids level prevented any flabiness -

    Citrus notes, a dash of honey with minerality on the finish. Excellent and happy we have a couple more. I think the wine was enjoyed by all.

    July 20, 2007 - Subtle, thought-provoking yet gratifying. Remarkably light in color given its age. Nose gradually open, rewarding the patient with a multitude of sensations that become apparent one-by-one: pure apple fruit, mineral, cream, smoke, wet straw, green pepper, and compost heap. Decidedly off-dry up front, and then the intensity of the (thoroughly ripe) acids brings things to a crisp, mouthwatering finish. Ridiculous bargain.

    May 10, 2007 - Popped and poured. This wine exhibited a light golden color with aromas of pineapples, candied oranges, apples and melon with hints of honey. On the palate, candied oranges, grilled pineapples, and sweet, ripe cantaloupe with hints of minerality. Nice, lengthy finish. Still drinking young! These wines last forever and are a great QPR!

    February 3, 2007 - Very good underlying material, sweetness, and texture but corked.
