Notes from the Importer: The short story is @collincooks met Philip Lardot in France during harvest 2013 and proceeded to talk Philip into going to the Mosel where he met the eccentric Dr. Stein and now, years later, they (Stein and Philip) have a sort of master / grasshopper relationship.

The “Graf” is a beautifully complex Riesling; a wine both of the Mosel and somehow sorta post-Mosel. It has something of the high-toned citrus and riper stone fruit profile common to Mosel Riesling, with an added complexity and a more gauzy, satiny feel. Bone-dry yet not harsh or extreme at all, in fact it is incredibly stylish and well-balanced. You can read the reviews but honestly, you gotta just taste this damn wine.
