WTN: Dinner Wines ('04 Donnhoff, '04 Kosta Browne)

Last night at dinner...

2004 Donnhoff Schlossbockelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Spatlese
This wine is elegant, even by Donnhoff's exalted standards. Peach, red fruit, spicy minerality, and a precise balance. This is not a spatlese that will blow anyone away, rather it is harmonious, silky and refreshing.

2004 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
A more retrained style of Pinot, despite the 15.2% warning on the front label. Cherry cola, earth and a bit of vanilla. Good acidity, and a lingering cherry finish. Nothing heavy or hot here. Very enjoyable. A less massive style California Pinot
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
