Karthäuserhof Riesling Auslese Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg 1997

Member Review by atonalprime:

Lots of petrol. After decanting for an hour, this full bodied riesling has a wonderful finish and more developed body than the 2007. I bought the bottle in hopes of saving it for another 5 years, but we'll see how long I can hold out! If you don't like the petrol, go for the younger vintage. Edit: Well, I drank it -- the cork was seeping a little bit, so I figured I'd save it while I could. I think this bottle had less Petrol and it was remarkable how long the apply finish continued on the palatte. Was a great accompaniment to fresh black cherries.
