ASS KICKING RIESLING!

Okay...this is a good one! I know I ranted about Angel's Gate 2006 Riesling a little while ago (and I absolutely love it) but I believe we have a serious rival here in the 2007 "Dr.L" Loosen Brothers Riesling from Germany. It is fan-tastic!

This wine has the same intensity as the Angel's Gate as well as the same complexity. There's nothing subtle about this wine because it packs a punch with a full boquet of fruit followed by a pleasing snap of acid on the finish with just the right level of sweetness as a counter.

Green apple, pear and melon are evident and there is slight carbonation to add crispness. It is a sweet Riesling, so if you opt for a dry version of this variety, you may want to pass this beautiful wine by. That would be a shame however because this wine can be enjoyed for exactly what it is, a sweet Riesling.

At $15.00 a crack you can't go wrong with this wine. I prefer my whites nice and cold because it accentuates the crispness. That's exactly how I enjoyed this kick ass Riesling which I have added to my list of favorites!!

Hi Mark:

Speaking of "wine" ... I have a cookie jar "overflowing" with cork ... I guess we'll have to "fed ex" it to you ... lol

The "reason" why I say we will have to "Fed Ex" the cork is because it looks like we will be moving to the U.S. ... Hugh has been offered a position at "head office" ... an offer too good to refuse ...

Hope all is well ...
