In our monthly wine club, we’re working through the suggested tastings in Great Wine Made Simple: Straight Talk from a Master Sommelier. I’m just going to be giving a quick run-down of this month’s wines. All were served slightly chilled.

2007 JJ Prum Kabinett

This Riesling hails from Mosel, Germany. It was pale, crisp, off-dry, and light-bodied with a short finish. This was the favorite of the two Rieslings. I give it 4 out of 5 stars and would definitely drink again.
