    Was this wine used in a Bourguignon? It's not red. A possible identity mixup? Also the price listed is about 10 times the ex-domain price, giving more credence to this supposition.

    Purchased at Weinhaus Porn, Bernkastel. Awkward and lacking life; undoubtedly enjoyed at the wrong time.

    3/26/2009: 2007 Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese * and Auslese *** Auction - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (3/25/2009) TN:2007 Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Spätlese * Auction (Versteigerungswein) Bernkasteler Ring Auction 2008 AP 2 576562 18 08; 9.0 pabv. Imported via Ewald Moseler Selections/Mitchell Wines, Portland, OR. Estimated costs: 6 bottles @ € 9.5 (US $14.25) plus US $4.26 (exchange fees and shipping)= $18.51 plus $4.00 per bottle UPS fees $18.51 wholesale; $27.77/750 ml estimated retail value at 33.3 percent markup on selling cost 120x 750 ml bottles produced; 6 bottles thought to be imported into the United States. Moderately strong straw-green (chlorophyll-like) like most Kerpen wines of this style. Mint, lavender, baby powder, spun sugar, transparent apple, hint of unleavened bread on the nose. Very firm acids on entry with a delicate floral impression; lissome body; sugar almost hidden under the acid but there's plenty of residual there, I think. Lime and a little peach on the finish. This wine is still a little rustic and has a touch of roughness, but will come together, I believe, with a little more time. Plenty of flavor and plenty of complexity and stylishness. 89-91/100. Note that these wines were perforce tasted within a week of shipping receipt, so this is a conservative score. By the third day a pleasant and promising hint of Prüm-like yeastiness and a nice vibrancy and integration, playing off the lime and lime-peel, have started to show. TN:2007 Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** Auction (Versteigerungswein) Bernkasteler Ring Auction 2008. AP 2 576562 24 08; 8.5 pabv; imported via Ewald Moseler Selections/Mitchell Wines, Portland, OR. Estimated Costs 6x 375 ml bottles purchased @ €14.00 (US $21.00each) plus US $4.26 (exchange fees and shipping)= $25.26 plus $4.00 per bottle UPS fees. $25.26 wholesale; $37.89 retail value at 33.3 percent markup on selling cost. 60 x 375 ml produced; 6 x 375 ml thought to have been imported into the United States Color may even be a little lighter than the Spätlese, but the same shade of green; heavier-bodied, of course. Strong unleavened bread scent, with honey, peach and mango; has a decided yeast note. Plenty of honey and soaring acid on entry; some citrus on the mid-palate; fairly well integrated for such a powerful wine. Enough botrytis to have been called a Beerenauslese, but not as sweet and sticky as would earn that title. The numbers are there, though, I'd bet. So is plenty of deftness on its feet for such a big wine. Very long finish that summarizes all of the above, with predominating honey and tartness. Needs some time to be adequately judged. 90-92/100. This is again a tasting within the first week after arrival, and so conservative. On the third day, the reductive yeast notes and the honey/apricot scents have melded to create something finer than at first. The acids and the sweetness are firm but balanced, and a neat bitter lime-peel sneaks in to the finish to bring about better integration. Both of these will be stunning beauties at the price I paid for them--about $22.50 and $43.90 INCLUDING SHIPPING, respectively.

    TN: A.J.Adam 2007 Riesling Kabinett Erzeugerabfüllung Prädikatswein AP 2 594 581 01 08 8 pabv; Theise/Skurnik/J & H Selbach. Winds Restaurant and Wine Shop; Yellow Springs, OH. Cork-finished (thank God) with a nice piece of Quercus bark, probably 7 years thick. The reason this is important is to follow.Wine shows hints of pinkish glints underneath the straw-green, giving away the fact of considerabule fuder-aging. I understand that this wine was bottled approxiately March. Quite dense and viscous om textire for type. Served without decanting.Those who love filigreed, finely etched Kabinetts will have to look elsewhere. This particular wine will not numb the nose, but it is as full an expression of a Hofberg as one is likely to find, even from such a master as Andreas Adam. It is a well-integrated, quite dense melange of hard spices, floral notes, and fruits with exotic hints like pawpaw, persimmon, and going on to edge itself with high-toned notes of chervil and fresh green French tarragon. The palate was as panoramic as the nose was. While this wine showed good evidence of the best kind of fuder-aging, there was nary a bit of sulfides or reduction. Both power and great length were available for the lover of some of the Mosel's most unjustly neglected vineyards. This wine reminds one very much of a fine Veldenzer Elisenberg from Dr. Dirk Richter, going to show that it can be the seasoning, not so much the meat of slate, that can make all the difference. The passion of Andreas for nuance is written all over this wine.This is a Kabinett that will go 15-20 years wtihout breaking a sweat. Unfortunately only 80 cases imported. This wine was served with hunks of relatively soft mimolette (one of my favorite cheeses) and it was a match made in heaven. What a surprise! Never thought of trying this.

By 3/31, open for almost 6 days, the wine has settled into a brisk, transparent-green minerality with a nice touch of saffron medicinality. There's even a touch of pleasant. juicy metallicity on the finish. More promising and I'm giving it another point. After reading the note on Kerpen's 2007s in International Wine Cellar, it's possible this is the best Kerpen Spätlese made in 2007. 91/100.TN:2007 Heribert Kerpen Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling Auslese *** Auction (Versteigerungswein) Bernkasteler Ring Auction 2008.AP 2 576562 24 08; 8.5 pabv; imported via Ewald Moseler Selections/Mitchell Wines, Portland, OR.Estimated Costs 6x 375 ml bottles purchased @ €14.00 (US $21.00each) plus US $4.26 (exchange fees and shipping)= $25.26 plus $4.00 per bottle UPS fees. $25.26 wholesale; $37.89 retail value at 33.3 percent markup on selling cost. 60 x 375 ml produced; 6 x 375 ml thought to have been imported into the United StatesColor may even be a little lighter than the Spätlese, but the same shade of green; heavier-bodied, of course.
