WINE REVIEW
Vinous
Dr. Crusius
90
"Smoky, stony and toasty nutty notes on the nose anticipate their piquant counterparts on a firm but voluminous palate. The 13.5% alcohol evinces no heat, but it seems to accentuate the piquancy of citrus peel and toasted nuts on a gripping finish that is certainly more formidable than fun. Crusius utilized a portion of small barrels here (the rest was in tank), though I can’t say that I detected any significant oak influence. It’s certainly possible that this will benefit from time in bottle; its sense of somewhat austere minerally and piquant concentration is not inappropriate to Riesling from this remarkably precipitous, rubbly site."
