"Creamy, with ripe peach and apple flavors that feature plenty of spice notes. Lots of custard and vanilla mark the finish. Drink now through 2014." (WS)

"Redolent of honeysuckle, fresh strawberry and red raspberry, Christoffel’s 2009 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett mingles those features into a soothing yet refreshing, refined yet exuberant lime sorbet-like palate presence. Following in the recent mold of Kabinetts that Christoffel never tires of reminding the taster would have been bottled as Auslesen 15 years ago let alone in the 1980s, this nonetheless preserves elegance as well as uncanny lift in its long finish, and ought to be worth following for 15-20 years.

I had to forego Hans-Leo Christoffel’s droll wit this year and (no offense meant to him by this remark of course!) taste with proprietor Robert Eymael." (WA)
