Meaty, leathery, somewhat Burgundian Pinot Noir-like notes are part of the aromatic display in the Diels’ auctioned 2008 Dorsheimer Pittermannchen Riesling Auslese Gold Capsule, along with spiced yellow plum preserves. A veritable fruit cocktail in syrup on the palate, this wine, picked November 20, displays the honey and caramel that signal botrytis, in contrast with the largely healthy concentration of the corresponding Goldloch. What that Auslese and this gold capsule Auslese miss is the juicy exuberance and refined, complex interplay of flavors that characterizes the very best vintage 2008 wines at this address. Still, in its gaudy and intriguing way, this is impressive, and probably set to thrive for the better part of three decades
