    February 6, 2021 - Tight seal on the cork, this bottle was less advanced than I expected. Some classic petrol, but interspersed nicely with white florals and lemon. Rich and fuller bodied but, given the vintage, not at all tropical or heavy. Ripe peach. Lovely bottle.

    December 8, 2017 - Much more developed than the GV from the same address. Some depth to it, mature apples.

    September 14, 2017 - Prager Dinner with Robert Bodenstein (Chicago, IL): To my palate, this was stewy and heat-damaged; interestingly, the 2000 Klaus also suffered the same fate.

    August 11, 2014 - Unmistakably Riesling with that rich, unctuous Petrol character, with lots of peach and ripe apple. Very good now, should continue to drink well for another 5+ years.

    December 18, 2012 - Light petrol on nose. Very dry, bordering on austere. Lemon and citrus themed flavors. Zingy acidity. Not an opulent wine, although I suspect the past 12 years have stripped some of the fruit. I'm not sure this wine has gotten better through aging- I admit I like the baby fat present in younger examples of Austrian Riesling
