Robert Parker: 93
"The 1994 Riesling Brand (100 cases for the United States) is usually the most flamboyant and ostentatiously-styled Z-H Riesling. Made from 35-48-year old hillside vines with a full southerly exposure, this wine tends to achieve the greatest ripeness and flavor intensity. It displays a deeper golden color than the Clos Windsbuhl, as well as a big, honeyed, fruit cocktail, mineral, and spice-scented nose, terrific acidity, full body, and a dry taste despite the presence of some residual sugar. It is a fabulously full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine. Most of the Zind-Humbrecht 1994 Rieslings have two strikes against them ... microscopic quantities and lofty price tags. Yet lovers of this varietal are not likely to see a more compelling cross section of Riesling than the offerings reviewed here." (Jun 1996)
