Baden Blauer Spatburgunder 2018

Bright garnet/ruby color. Beautiful floral nose with hints of dark cherry and root beer. Bright dark cherry fruit on the pallet with hints of fresh soil, minerals and just a touch of that root beer. Bright and fruit forward. Soft texture and well balanced. Excellent German Pinot Noir. — 2 months ago

Hard Chardonnay 2019

Lyle Fass

Always so good. Opulent and incisive. Deep nose. Lots of amplitude. Huge limestone. Herbal. So complex. German Chardonnay is so awesome. What a palate. Huge core of apple and pear fruit and stacked with minerals and a malo sweetness. So long and nimble. Gorgeous wine. Almost 9.5. — 2 months ago

Blauer Spätburgunder Schulen 2016

The top German Pinots continue to be 🔥. Absolutely gorgeous black cherry, black tea, dried lavender, lithe and balanced, bordering on generous but still enough structure to hold it together and provide longevity — 3 months ago

@Pooneet K Now’s the time to dive in! The Germans have got to be loving global warming


Viviser Gutedel 2019


Didn’t really know what the heck was going on - at first it was white burgundy - like Pouilly Fuisse - very elegant tho fairly reductive nose of Granny Smith apples & lemon/lime notes along w/wet stones, rocks & gravel. Acid bomb on palate, just rigid angular razor sharp Teutonic precision. Again, not a ton of fruit here, very restrained. Maybe more Chablis-like? I appreciate the esoteric varietals here and the craftsmanship… — a month ago

Jaspis Würmlin Grauer Burgunder 2018

Lyle Fass

What a color. Pink/Grey. Gorgeous. Nose is stunning. Pink grapefruit. Stone fruits. Sinewy earth. Juicy palate, so lean, yet so serene with terrific fruit extract and purity. Lovely sap. Perfect balance. With air this gets crazy perfumed. Wow. — 3 months ago

Rhini Blauer Spätburgunder 2019

N:Reticent, herbaceous, black plums, cocoa. Plush red/brown velvet nose.
P: Way too young… patience my man,
But nice plums, tilled earth, dense, herbs, lots of acid,
This ain’t no Cali/Ore Pinot.
I say come back in five? yrs.
After 1 hr + in a decanter, Wow! Dirty leather,
Thank @ Fass Selections
From Skurnik:

The pick of the sites on the big hill, this is limestone again, and the wine is fascinating, bloody yet almost mineral; a truly complex mid-palate, animated and squirming; dark fruit and warm crust and a lingering multi-faceted finish.
