Luckily the wines are pretty easy to get.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.

Had a 2012 Loosen Urz Wurz "Fischerei" this week that I really enjoyed.

  • 2012 Dr. Loosen Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (11/3/2013)
    A little petillance of youth, big blast of apple fruit, quite sweet, excellent acidity. At this stage the best apple cider ever, but of course there is also nice minerality, a bit of strawberry if you look for it (from a portion of the vineyard with different geology than the rest). Liked more than any Loosen wine in quite a while.
    A pleasure now, undoubtedly different pleasures to come.
