91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Donnhoff's 2009 Oberhauser Leistenberg Riesling Kabinett - ultra-delicate at only 9% alcohol and with considerably more overt sweetness than its Krotenpfuhl counterpart - is scented with buddleia, white peach, toasted almond, and a fusil note of crushed stone, and offers subtle creaminess, lusciously juicy refreshment, and minerally interactive persistence. This illustrates slate as a sort of sounding board as well as support structure for fruit such as one also encounters in the best residually sweet Mosel Rieslings. Donnhoff routinely expresses acute awareness of a duty to make something truly special out of the cooler 'wrong-side-of-the-river' Oberhauser vineyards that until the latter part of his father's era constituted almost the entirety of his family's acreage. That duty has here once again been deliciously discharged." (02/11) According to importer Terry Theise: "Again, and for the second straight year, this soars beyond its class; indeed it’s impossible to imagine a more perfect Riesling on a moderate scale. It’s as if it had one last chance to express its utter truth, everything it loved, raged over, believed in, belonged to, and it couldn’t afford a single false word, not this time, only the simple truth as deeply as it could be mined. Sit, listen, here we go."
