This was cool to try at the winery.  The bottle had been open, but refrigerated for three days.  Still a vibrant green/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose has diesel as one might expect from a 16 year old Riesling, but also nice minerality and a hint of peach.  Full bodied.  A broad complexity on the palate.  Minerals and slight citrus.  Nice finish.  Although showing some age, for those who appreciate an aged Riesling, this is drinking well.  This would work well with a nice Mulligatawny soup.

Green/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose is deep with lots of minerality.  Some peaches and a slight citrus note.  Medium bodied.  Nice balance.  On the palate, this has a nice tight complexity that will unwind over the years.  Peach with underlying minerality.  Good finish.  One of the most enjoyable wines from a tasting of this producer.  It drinks well now and should improve with some age.  Either way, this will drink well over the next ten to twelve years.  It drinks well on its own and would work well with fried foods.

Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has great minerality.  Slight lemons.  Medium bodied.  Light tannins.  On the palate, the minerality comes thru.  This is dry.  And herbal note, especially on the finish.  Lots of depth.  This is drinking well now and should continue for another ten years.  Nice on its own, this will work well with Thai food.

Yellow/gold in color, clear and bright.  Great nose.  sort of "Juicy Fruit" gum with some minerality.  Nice texture.  Moderate acidity.  The palate matches the nose.  Solid finish.  This is a nice, easy drinking dry Riesling.  It drinks nicely on its own and will work with lighter foods such as a fruit or seafood salad.

Very nice showing for this wine.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes, smoke/sulfur and slight white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Moderate acidity.  On the palate, lime with some hay notes.  Really pleasant, long finish.  The acidity here helps this become more food friendly although it still drinks well on its own.  It will work well with fried chicken and other fried foods.  Drink over the next five to seven years.

Yellow/gold in color, clear and bright.  The nose shows smoke/sulfur which partially blows off.  Limes and slight white pepper come out.  Medium bodied.  Velvety texture.  Low acidity.  On the palate, minerals with slight limes and a hint of herbs.  This drinks easily on its own.  Drink over the next few years.

Yellow/green in color, clear and bright.  The nose has limes, herbs, and white pepper.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, this seems to have slight residual sugar.  Lime with fresh herbs.  This is refreshing and quite tasty.  Nice finish.  This drinks well on its own and would work well with foods that have a slight amount of spice/heat such as Szechwan.  Drink over the next five to seven years.

This is a 50/50 blend of Zweigelt and Pinot Noir.  Pale, silvery/salmon pink in color, clear and bright.  The nose is tight with some watermelons.  Moderate acidity. On the palate, watermelon and slight strawberry notes.  Clean.  Some heat on the finish.  A fine wine to sip with lunch or on the deck.  It will work well with  lighter foods.  Chicken salad would work well.
