Karthäuserhof 2010 Ruwer Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberg BA 375

Karthäuserhof is a treasure in the Ruwer valley; a monastery run for nearly 500 years by Carthusian (hence the name) monks starting in the early 1300s, it was secularized in 1803 and purchased by a French general in 1811. Since then it's been passed down family lines for seven generations with its 19-hectare monopol, the Eitelsbacher Karthäsuserhofberg. Soils on the 'berg are mostly Devonian blue slate with iron oxide striations at varied levels of erosion, and some veins of clay in the soil below to help with water retention. The dense forests in the region bring both shelter from the winds on the slope, and also a variety of fauna and insects to the vineyard. In the bottles I've been able to try, I always find something mineral and green in these wines. Not green as in young, but green, like a freshly rain-soaked forest. In 2010 there were lower yields all around Germany, and this was also true in the Ruwer. Karthäuserhof had close to a 50% loss in yields, but was still able to produce a Beerenauslese, due to the clean, beautiful botrytis and sustained acidity from the cooling weather around harvest time. These bottles came to us from a private cellar, and we would love to hear any reports about how this is tasting. I'm assuming it's probably still very young!! Cari Bernard

Berberana 1966 Carta de Oro Rioja Crianza

Berberana was founded in 1877 and their style is and was very traditional. As a result, the wines age well for a very long time. This bottle of 1966 Rioja was very much alive  when I tasted it in October: savory, integrated, and delicate, but still boldly red fruited and redolent of sandalwood, dried tobacco, and spice. It will need air (at least an hour) to come back to life when opened.  Ben Fletcher
