Million dollar baby. (Boxler... get it?)
A delicious Alsatian! Albert Boxler, Riesling, 2005. Wine House $29.99.
This wine had lots of great mineralit, fresh and tangy but it was infused with such rich (but bone dry!) honeyed notes. Broad but liner. Does that makes sense? I just loved it. Peter blind tasted me on it (I got it wrong - put it in Germany at Spatlese level fermented to dryness) I thought, wow, my husband loves me a lot to open this for me tonight!
We watched Weeds and drank Boxler and I thought - it doesn't get better than this! (I'm fairly easy to please... hmm... well, on second thought I guess that depends on who you ask.)
