Reichsrat von Buhl Riesling ‘Armand’ Kabinett 2012: Ruby grapefruit, green apple, peach and lemon curd flavors. Ample minerality, which gives it that big, powerful finish. Region: Pfalz, Germany. Price: $21.99. Goes with: Spicy foods, such as Thai, creamy cheeses, and summer salads. Why we chose it: This great example of German Riesling is a crisp, elegant wine that can be enjoyed with or without food. It’s made in a dry style and as typical of Riesling, there are so many different nuances that each sip will bring you something new.
This is Bottle No. 11 in our 10th series.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Tracy Maxon and J.J. Berlingo of Varmax Liquor Pantry..
