2005 Willi Schaefer Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett
I really wanted to like this, but despite a lovely start, it has a huge hole in the mid-palate where any amount of slate-infused depth should be. It's disarmingly soft (ah 2005, ye of inadequare acids), and overall sort of watery. Very disappointing. Maybe it's closed, or too warm, or too cold, or it's a root day. Maybe all of them at once.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
