2013 Germany

Two thousand thirteen is not a vintage for the faint of heart. High in both acidity and dry extract, the 2013s were quite austere after bottling. Over the last several months, however, the wines have gained both depth and body. The vintage also saw a great deal of botrytis. How these various components were managed at each individual estate was the key to the success.

Rock Creek’s interior is gorgeous, rustic and airy with a glass garage door that slides completely open when the notoriously cranky weather permits. A series of small, closely spaced wooden tables and low lighting emit a relaxed and informal vibe.

2012 Vietti Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco ($25) 92

2012 Vietti Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco, 92 points

Vietti’s 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco is fabulous. Floral and lifted, the flavors are bright, focused and beautifully articulated throughout. Chalky notes support a sculpted, brilliant finish laced with hints orange peel, white pepper and crushed rocks. (AG)

1989 Trimbach Riesling Clos Ste. Hune Vendages Tardives Hors Choix

What a treat it is to taste one of Alsace’s great all time wines! In fact, this is an especially rare bottling of Clos Ste. Hune in that it only came to be thanks to the particular nature of the 1989 vintage in Alsace, when Botrytis cinerea was rampant.
