Through the Other Side: Burgundy 2016 in Bottle

The 2016 Burgundy vintage is infamous for the devastating late spring frosts and inclement weather. Yet the surviving fruit enjoyed a blissful second half of the growing season. The reds are small in quantity but supposedly big in quality. So how do they shape up when assessed blind?

2018 Turley Zinfandel Old Vines ($25.00) 90

2018 Turley Zinfandel Old Vines, 90 points

Turley’s 2018 Zinfandel Old Vines is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Sweet dark cherry, new leather, spice, menthol, licorice and red flower all open up effortlessly. Medium in body yet fleshy and wonderfully deep, the 2018 is absolutely delicious.

1975 Egon Müller Riesling Scharzhofberger Trockenbeerenauslese

Though the bottle is still on the other side of the room on its way to the dining table, I instantly register that it is a) exceedingly rare and extraordinarily expensive and b) already open for serving.
