    November 22, 2018 - From Magnum. Light golden in color. There are citrus and stone fruits with a noticeable petrol scent that blows off on the glass fairly quickly. In a stage of great balance between weight gained of the past 18 years and vibrancy on the palate. It penetrates the palate and the finish is at least thirty seconds long.
    Well kept, I think this can age another 10 years easily. It will get heavier. Everyone at Mario's house loved it and it paired so well with our turkey this year. Happy Thanksgiving!

    September 21, 2015 - Beautiful honey straw color. Sweet nectarines and baked apples on the palate. Good minerality and length. There is a touch of heat on the finish that ever so slightly distracts, but overall this is an excellent full bodied Riesling.

    September 4, 2014 - Stoney almost flinty with no petrol notes. Very long finish.

    February 24, 2012 - Pretty nose - floral and with a weighty honeyed citrus note. Balanced, mature palate. Heady truffle notes. Medium to full bodied, with an impression of sweetness. Ready. Nice.
