    January 28, 2017 - The first truly compelling wine that I have tasted from Zind-Humbrecht and I do not believe that it is a coincidence that it is also the oldest...
    Amazingly intense and interesting nose; clearly on the very evolved side yet holding together with no problems. The acid/sweetness balance is spot on and the wine shows a very long and clean finish. Which Z-H wine to try next?

    August 1, 2006 - Dinner with friends (My house): Some pine-sol, honey, and butterscotch on the nose - comes across as too old to me. Actually a very nice palate. Mature with a full, oily, thick texture. Tropical fruits and some Gewürztraminer character remain. Finishes nicely with a good balanced acidity. Attractive old wine, expressive and interesting.

    August 1, 2006 - Yowza. Intense nose with Gewürz florals and Goldert stone and power. Nicely balanced sweetness upfront, but held in check with an austerity and mineral tightness. Goldert brings a very much needed precision to Gewürz's tendency to run amok. Long finish with orchids, tropical fruits and fleshy notes. Wonderful.
