Under $13/bottle probably doesn't qualify for black tie.

I'm not at home, so I don't have my notes on this, but I did like the Brut version of this wine. The sweet one is just too sweet for my palate, but there are very few sweet wines that I like.

It's a tough mix, but if you get both, you can please both spectrums of tastes when you have a party.

Notes on Sweet:
- Nice aperitif (we had this to open the night at the Austin gathering)
- Definitely sweet (what you would expect from a sweet Riesling)
- Notes of melon, apple and honey
- Nice and light

Notes on Brut:
- Notably drier (as one might expect)
- Flavors were a bit subdued compared to the sweet
- Also light with a clean/crisp finish

I bought this configuration the last time it was on....was not impressed at all by the Brut and the Riesling was, well, Riesling. I wouldn't buy it again, but then what do I know?

I wouldn't go that far. This is a typical Saturday, and this is a wine that has been sold here numerous times.

That was going to be my comment. Multiple sales all with fading interest for these sparklers. Fear these in future woot-offs.

my wife adores reisling in all its manifestations- certainly hope there are more offerings 'cause if the gatekeeper is happy i'm happy!
