Interesting note, Tim. 2006 was a notoriously botrytis-plagued vintage in Alsace. Nice to see a comeback of sorts on the Weinbach. I wonder if the riper Schlossberg Rieslings are showing more rot.

David make my day and announce you have some Petaluma and Bests Great Western!

Somewhere in about 2003 I got turned onto the Roseneck Spatlese & started to focus more of my attentions there. Now I rarely buy the Berg Schlossberg anymore. I'm sure the cellar is poorer for it, but the Roseneck is no slouch either (especially 2006 throgh 2009).
