What'd you think of these two? I had the 04 Far Niente Estate a couple months ago and was rather disappointed. But I've yet to taste a Realm and have a few friends who keep really talking them up, so I'm curious what you think.
My wife and I went to a 2009 German Riesling tasting this weekend. I usually turn down invitations to retail tastings but Riesling is something I’m really into right now so we decided to check this out and I’m glad we did. There were 18 wines to taste and these were the best on offer:

AJ Adam Kabinett Dhron Hofberb
Dr. Loosen Kabinett Bernkasteler Lay
Fritz Haad Spatlese Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr
St. Urbans-Hof Spatlese Piesporter Goldtropfchen
Selbach-Oster QBA Zeltinger Schlossberg Schmitt

The wines were very easy to like with ripe fruit and nice balance. I think I could have used a bit more acidity overall, but this is nitpicking as the majority of the wines were really nice, especially for the price.

Im not a big cali cab drinker, but I enjoyed the Realm much more than the Far Niente.

How was it? just got 6 this week.

Delicious. I've had about 6 or 7 of these so far. I like them better than the 06 personally.


Nice to hear it's already drinking well!
