The first thing I want to say about this wine is kind of superficial, but I'm okay with it: the bottle is pretty cool. This bottle just says, "Drink this wine. Feel this wine." It transports you to another time and place.
This wine is special. You can just taste it from the very first sip.
When I walked into our local wine shop, Unwined, and I saw this German wine delicately displayed by itself on a wooden rack toward the front, I knew there was something...different about it.
One evening in 2007, I sat outside of the freshman dorm, my eyes glazed and my vision blurry from one too many late-night drinks.
