This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

A couple of Germans

Dinner at HAKU.

Stroebel Triptyque - flinty, mineral, a bit ripe and bitter on the palate but there is some acidity on the back end.

1989 von Schubert Maximin Grünhauser Herrenberg Kabinett - nice and flinty, with green apple and muscat grape.  Some sweetness nicely balanced with acidity.

2007 Freiherr von Gleichenstein Baron Philipp Spätburgunder Oberrotweiler Eichberg trocken - initially pungent, but very big nose full of toast, along with leather and animal notes.  Also nice with sweet fruit, floral and fragrant, with some coffee and chocolate.  Unfortunately the wine doesn't last in the glass, and with more aeration the palate became bitter and less pleasant.

Full post on dinner is here.
