Tasting Note                         

85   2008  Dr. Wagner Ockfener Bockstein Riesling Kabinett (Saar)  2/14/10 ($20)

   8.5% alc
Color: Light silver yellow. (2.5) Bouquet: Nice fruit and decent acidity, but a little sweet and non-descript. (2.5) Body: Middleweight with very good fruit and acidity. (2.5) Flavor: Fruit comes to the forefront here. Very tasty and rich sweetness. (3.0) Finish: Parallels flavor with minerality lingering, but the fruit is less persistent. (2.5)
Overall: An enjoyable, simple Riesling, but a little over-priced and a little sweet for a Kabinett. Could use more distinctive fruit and character. (13.0)
