2012 Wagner-Stempel Cuvée Steinkönig -trocken- with dinner last night. This is only the second vintage of this wine I believe and it is a blend of St. Laurent, Merlot and Fruehburgunder and unlike the white wines I have had from Wagner Stempel, this is only decent/serviceable and lacks the profoundness of the whites. Very round and soft tannins and fairly simple flavors of cherry and spice with a somewhat short but pleasant finish. Best consumed with simple foods, it fulfilled its mission last night and could have been good with some simple grilled German fare like Brats and marinated Winzersteak, as well.

2013 Wagner-Stempel Siefersheimer Riesling Vom Porphyr Trocken. What can I say...when in Germany, do as the Germans do. This is so delicious it's just silly. Laser focused fruit and minerality, but lush on the midpalate and pretty on the finish. I don't remember what I paid exactly, but it was cheap by US standards. I could drink this every day.
