Weingut Carl Schmitt Wagner

Imposingly tangy red-slate fragrance, and the palate is swollen with spice, not to mention insane length; a slithery angular thing that hardly seems to end; almost eucalyptus high notes and black-forest cake low notes; cherry and dark chocolate and a cunning little overtone of papaya.

Wine Advocate

Coffee, sea spray, caraway, apricot, and red delightfully scent and flavor the juicy and engaging Schmitt-Wagner 2009 Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Riesling Spatlese. Lush suggestions of ripe melon and subtle stoniness and an exotic hint of cocoa on the lightly-creamy palate lead to a satisfyingly long finish not quite as distinctively delicious today as the corresponding Kabinett. But this wine will be worth following for at least 15 years.

Score: 89. —David Schildknecht, December 2010.
