Nice zesty orange and lemon flavors made interesting by honey and mineral notes. A little "lean" for my taste though. Read more

For someone who loves "all that is Zind"- this orange-imbued 2007 riesling actually carried dominant hints of disappointment. Not that it was bad, at ALL- but that it just wasn't up to snuff to even the Zind Gewurtztraminer, least I felt. Yes, the nose, body and all elements of the wine were lovely- but for any price tag above $20, one's expectations rise as well. Especially regarding a house as profound and renown as Mr. Humbrecht's. And even more especially, the Riesling. Maybe the vintage ('07) was just a rough one. His Pinot Gris, Gewurtztraminers and blends of all above from other vintages have blown me away time and again- but this time Mr. Humbrecht actually scored below his price tag. And this being the only time to do so. I gave this wine an "82" should such numbers matter to you, especially concerning its "Sale" price of still being over $20. If it were $15 a bottle, this would be a 90+. But, it ain't. A mild, 'orangey' disappointment.

A mix of smoke, mineral and apple aromas and flavors in a dry, racy profile. This may be a bit lean for some tastes, so make sure you pair it with food. The citrus and mineral aftertaste begs for oysters or shellfish. Best from 2009 through 2017.
