WTN: 1998 Boxler Riesling - Brand and Sommerberg nose to nose

Unfortunately this match-up turned out to be anticlimactic. Both wines are shut down right now, refusing to show their stuff. If you have any, wait a year before opening.

I was able to coax a little from the wines. I preferred the aromatics of the Brand, but the flavors of the Sommerberg. Both wines gave that sense of more to come, but they were very reserved today.
