The scents and flavors here deliciously resemble that of cinnamon- and lemon-zest-tinged, lightly singed purple plum pastry. And as is often the case with Riesling from this site, there is also a high-toned suggestion of plum and poire distillate. The palate displays a striking combination of succulence with textural gloss and animating acidity, while a penetrating, cheek-tugging, mouth-shakingly invigorating finish incorporates delightful and unexpected cooling notes of wintergreen as well as delivering loads of stone and mouthwatering salinity. Drinking this left me feeling both renewed and a bit wrung out. Drink from 2017-2040.
