I'd say his portfolio's usually better. I was not thrilled by his 2007s, and found them a little on the soft side and lacking the cut and raciness his wines normally show. They're very good wines, but my usual expectation for Schaefer is nothing short of jawdropping. More often than not, the wines reach those expectations at EVERY pradikat level.
I promise you, Salil, this was a most gorgeous example with excellent cut and raciness and no shortage of thirst quenching acidity - and no discernible softness I detected.
