Tried this last week:
1. Muller-Catoir Mussbacher Eselshaut Rieslaner Auslese Pfalz (8.0%; QmP; Ap.Nr. 5 174 079 16 96; TerryTheiseImprts) Reustadt 1995: Very dark/burnished bronze/almost black color; very intense botrytis/peachy/apricotty beautiful very complex old R nose; bit tart/tangy very sweet intense botrytis/peachy/apricotty/creme brulee very complex flavor; very long/lingering very grapey/botrytis/R/peachy/apricotty quite tangy/bit metallic/bit sour intensely sweet very complex finish; a beautiful example of an old BA wine.

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Rieslaner is a late-ripening Sylvaner X Riesling cross developed in Franconia in 1921. The wine was surprisingly dark for 14 yrs old, more like an old Calif BA, but no signs of oxidation. Though labeled Auslese, it was ceretainly of a BA level. Terrific wine.

Nice, Tom. Sounds like our '97 a couple weeks back. Joyful wine that was a nice send off on the night.

Is that how they calculate 14 years at LANL? Maybe some new computer code is in order.
