The second wine of our #7 virtual wine tasting was very disappointing. I ordered this Trimbach having really enjoyed it before, the reviews were great and the brand is solid. No one in the tasting group enjoyed either the room temp version nor the chilled.
Paint thinner, petrol, pine, grass and pineapple were descriptors that we heard. Personally I found the wine disjointed, the nose muted and the flavors were just off. I am going to re-taste tonight but don’t have much hope. Interestingly, I tasted the 2013 Riesling twice in 2017 and had very different tasting notes, but they were both consistent 90 point wines. This one is 86, and at $17 it’s a 2 point wine. Salut….
