    November 7, 2018 - Simply stunning gewurztraminer. Incredibly, Tanzer's note from 1999 is an almost perfect description of the wine today, nearly 20 years later, right down to the 'red grapefruit' description, which I never would have come up with myself. Unfortunately, I think this is my last bottle. Sweet, moderately unctuous, with wonderful and enough acidity that it is not even remotely cloying. I could drink this all night long. Fantastic. Goes great with Indian curry dish.

    April 4, 2016 - Oro antico. Ricco ed aromatic, tra scorza di mandarino, rosa, roccia liquida, pepe bianco, muschio. Moderatamente dolce, fresco, ha incredibile vitalità

    September 3, 2012 - Lovely stuff. Dewy as you might expect from a late harvest wine, with typical and pretty lychee aromas; on the palate, some caramelized notes not out of line with the fifteen years of age on this bottling. Rich, flavorful, with a slightly herbal, mineral finish. One of the best gewurztraminers I have had. 92+
