Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve 50 Anniversary To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Another young one. Chocolate brownie and s’mores, with a coffee marshmallow. Rich vanilla bean creeps in, and warm plum jam that mysteriouslypowders atop pumpkin bread full of the usual spices aromatically. Grape-y, with grainy tannins, first skin of a dark red apple, red incense, cherry skins, lipstick with crispy beef and black soils. The final notes boast oak and blackberry, with cinnamon stick. The middle and finish give you an idea of the depth and breadth that the first aromas belie. #ToKalon #mondavi #robertmondavi #Napa #napavalley2013 #singlevineyard #Oakville #reserve #cabernetday #californiacab #cab — 6 years ago

Reserve Erdener Prälat Alte Reben Riesling 2011

Here's where it all began... #Loosen decided to experiment with different durations of time with yeast contact...the "#Reserve" having 24 months on the #lees which gives the wine greater complexity and depth of flavor, not to mentioned aging potential. #Riesling #2011 #altereben #ErdenerPrälat — 9 years ago

Rosemount Estate

Show Reserve Hunter Valley Botrytis Sémillon 1984

A rare old drop of sticky #rosemountestate then Bob Oatley-owned; #sémillon #botrytis #1984 #reserve ; 12.8%; #upperhuntervalley ; wine correct, honied, nougat, rarely occurs, now drying; fullly mature; odd wine to acquire from a previous employee. — 8 years ago

Reserve Ürziger Würzgarten Alte Reben Riesling 2011

#DRY, yes, but not too much so because it has such perfect ripeness and sexy acidity that it actually comes off as more opulent and not in the least bit austere. A full 24 months on the #lees has given this remarkable wine layers of complexity and, well, the "spiciness" that you would expect from a "spice garden"!

Ürziger Würzgarten Hommage Alte Reben Riesling 2011

#Hommage" is Erni's 36-months-on-the-lees project and we think it is an exciting one as the wine has, believe it or not, even more power and intensity than the regular #GGs or the "#Reserve" bottlings. Time will tell how this wine pans out, but if what we recently tasted is any indication, one needn't worry in the least--BRAVO!!! #2011 #Riesling #altereben
