It goes without saying, but Schaefer's 2015s are stunning.

In any vintage, Schaefer's wines thrive on an unparalleled fineness. In 2015, they have a purity that's simply astounding. The first time that I tasted the 2015 Schaefers, it was among a strong line-up of 2015s and they jumped out.

Both of the 2015 Kabinetts are riveting. They combine agility and intensity. I have a major soft spot for Schaefer's Kabinetts. With age, they become hauntingly elegant. Every time I look at my personal cellar I find myself wishing I had more Schaefer Kabinett.

The 2015 Himmelreich has an amazing cut and delicacy boasting beautiful high-toned floral notes and saline minerality. The Domprobst is more layered with more overt stone fruit notes. It's also just brilliant.

I'll wrap this up. You know the deal with Schaefer and the small size of the estate. I advise you not to wait on ordering.
