Any of you guys have cellars with a good number of talk riesling bottles? How do those fit in the typical Bordeaux bottle racks? Is double racking even possible? At some point once I’ve bought a home I’ll want to design a cellar that can accommodate my rieslings.

Opened the 2017 Pato last night. Two hour decant. Reminds me of the Weill O'Way Mixed Blacks but with more savory character and a more polished mouthfeel overall. Black fruits, black pepper, espresso, smoke, a little meat, purple flowers, and dried herbs.
