I hate to be one of those guys who brags about what he’s drinking. It’s a rotten part of the wine business. We’re excited about wine. We want to share that enthusiasm especially when we taste certain wines that are unusual. So please forgive my animated remarks about a handful of wines I’ve had in the last few days — there’s a larger point to be made.
Last week, I was in Charlotte with some friends — folks from Winestore and one of America’s best wine writers, Josh Raynolds. We tasted through a pretty nice set of wines, but the wine that inspires this post was Fritz Haag’s Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Goldkapsule Auslese 2001.
It was nowhere near as sweet as in years past, a phenomenon I have observed for years but still can’t fathom.
