2007 Joh. Jos. Prüm Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spätlese (Previously $44)
93 points Wine & Spirits: "At this stage, this feels much more open and generous than its Sonnenuhr counterpart, showing bright, floral flavors of tangerine and white peach. Its bold, rounded depth of fruit reveals more nuance and complexity the longer this sits in the glass, and it should feel even more focused and complete in a few years, after shedding its initial puppy fat." (10/09) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Very delicate, precise and detailed. Violet, slate and peach aromas are followed by mint and peach flavors, with an ever-present back note of mineral. There's wonderful harmony and balance. Drink now through 2028." (04/09) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Green apple, lemon oil and clover on the nose. Light and lively yet velvety on the palate. Rose petal and saline minerality mingle on the crisp, well-balanced, lipsmacking finish, which is long and elegant." (Jan/Feb 09) The '07 Prüm Himmelreich Spätlese is a bit more revealing aromatically than its Kabinett counterpart. Full of apricot and peach fruit on the palate with mineral overtones and compact structure, this is a nimble, broader style than the Sonnenuhr Spätlese and more immediately approachable.
