WTN: Dinner Wines ('04 Donnhoff, '04 Kosta Browne)

by David M. Bueker » Thu May 04, 2006 6:10 pm

Last night at dinner...

2004 Donnhoff Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Spatlese
This wine is elegant, even by Donnhoff's exalted standards. Peach, red fruit, spicy minerality, and a precise balance. This is not a spatlese that will blow anyone away, rather it is harmonious, silky and refreshing.

2004 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
A more retrained style of Pinot, despite the 15.2% warning on the front label. Cherry cola, earth and a bit of vanilla. Good acidity, and a lingering cherry finish. Nothing heavy or hot here. Very enjoyable. A less massive style California Pinot
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
