4 stars "Color: pale; Nose: complex; Aromas: mineral, spicy, citrus fruit, tropical fruit; Acidity: crisp; Sweetness: medium dry; Body: light-bodied; Finish: very persistent; Overall: well balanced; Initially sweet buy later so well balanced you did not notice. Very minerally and as they say racy. Try to hold onto other bottle for awhile."

90 points ""There's a spicy, tangy quality to this white, along with quince and anise. It's all underscored by a mineral element and a vibrant structure, with a fine, lingering aftertaste of stone and anise. Best from 2009 through 2022. 3,000 cases made." WS: On the blue slate soil, this gives a lively minerality to the wine, along with a delicate and crisp acidity that perfectly balances the bright white peach and lemon fruit. This sweet Riesling is an amazing find; drink this now or let it sit for some time and really see this wines potential come forward. Coming from the Blue Slate region it delivers a nice mineral flavor which balances well with the crisp clean finish. Fruit flavors consisting of peach and nectar jump out and entice the palate to search for more flavors. " Best 2009-2022

91 points "A terrific value in top-flight Riesling, this kabinett is named for a slate common in the middle Mosel and is sourced from a variety of Loosen’s estate vineyards. Apple, cinnamon and slate notes are wonderfully interwoven in a wine that’s creamy in texture without any accompanying heaviness. Finishes long and vibrant. - J.C. (10/1/2009)"
