Nice off-dry quaffer. There is more heft to this wine since last having it 7 or 8 months ago. The fruit is all bright and the acidity is still very well balanced.

Flavorful enough but lacking in acidity. Disappointing.
Three days (in the fridge) later, the acidity is more noticeable and it's somewhat refreshing.
I think Bill and I have been fans of Dr L for quite a while!! We have it on the winelist at the Grill and it sells well. Many come in and want Piesporter, so a good selling job is in order by the waiting staff. Seems to pay off.
I have a tasting note on the `04 somewhere, will look up.
