2 Brothers Riesling 2006

Member Review by Alleigh:

The wine was a pale gold with very slow forming legs. It had medium pronounced smell of stone fruits—peach and apricot—and lime. There were also minerally aromas and a hint of white blossoms. In the mouth, the mineral flavors dominated, but didn’t overpower the peaches and apricots. There was a hint of lime, honeydew melon, and blossoms on the finish. The wine could have had a little more crisp acidity to counter the juiciness, but that is more my preference rather than an actual complaint. Don’t be fooled by fruity descriptions, though, as the wine is not overly sweet. For my complete review, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/qE8Ti

After reading the first review, I wonder if something was wrong with how this wine was handled prior to my purchasing of it. I found the wine barely drinkable, with an overpoweringly sweet taste and a stale current finish. Did not taste well-balanced at all.

Aromas of citrus, lime and mineral are complimented nicely on the palate by flavors of white peach and apricot all coming together on the clean finish balanced with nice acidity.This wine comes from two brothers, Alex a wine importer and Erik, a tattoo artist. Together they created Big Tattoo Wines in honor of their mother, Liliana S. Bartholomaus, who passed away from cancer in 2000. Alex manages all aspects of production and Erik's design of Liliana's favorite symbol, the Fleur de Lys, can be found on each of the winery's bottlings. For every bottle sold, 50 cents has been donated in the name of Liliana S. Bartholomaus, to selected charities focusing on breast cancer research and hospice care. Beginning in late 2006, the brothers expanded their mission to reach charities affecting the community where the wine is sold.Big Tattoo Wines added the 2 Brothers line in 2007 in order to expand the projects reach. Donation funds raised will surpass $1 million in mid-2007. With the addition of the 2 Brothers wines, the winery hopes to donate another $1 million by the end of 2009.
