2011 Domaine Les Pins "Les Rochettes" Bourgueil
Review Date: 3-3-2014
If you’re afraid of pretty, this isn’t for you. A beautifully focused aromatic with brambly fruits along with purple flowers and just a touch of uplifting spice. Along with all of its upfront beauty this also offers a fantastic depth of flavor and structure. A touch of salty black olive, ripe red cherry and soft wet mineral and a juicy but delicate finish. My wife actually shot daggers out of her eyes the first time we ran out, so I made sure to get some more in ASAP! Give it a good hour of decanting or put away for a good 3-5 years.

2012 Mönchhof Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett
Review Date: 2-13-2014
I have been a huge fan of the wines from the Mönchhof estate for many many years now. And, over the years they have happily become one of my “go to wines”. They are always fashioned in a way which is unpretentious and stylistically spot on. The 2012 Wurzgarten Kabinett is tasty, tasty, tasty… full of spice and uplifting minerality on the nose and a precise combination of texture, linear definition and juicy finish. Although this is easily chuggable right now this will cellar very nicely over the next 10+ years. (Eric Story, German Buyer)

2007 Schloss Schönborn Riesling Kabinett
Review Date: 10-2-2013
This 2007 Kabinett is just now starting to show off its sexy potential. Light and delicate on the palate but retaining a racy core of bright fruit and juicy acidity. Definite no brainer…
