Professional reviews:

Wine Spectator: “This complex white features stone, herb and bouillon aromas that complement its fig, anise and lime flavors. Cohesive, persistent and long, with a savory aftertaste. Drink now through 2024. 500 cases made. –BS” 91/100 pts

Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht): “Behind a yeasty, slightly cheesy note in the nose of the St. Urbans-Hof 2009 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett (what proprietor Weis euphemistically but perhaps also appropriately calls “the cocoon”) comes a site-typical effusion of pink grapefruit, apple and banana, which go on to inform an expansive, polished, yet delicate palate. The longer this stands open the more expressive it becomes, with hints of citrus zest and crushed stone adding some punch to its impressive persistence. Despite its mere 8% alcohol, this does not taste overly sweet, offering a fine example of the potential this vintage for achieving “genuine Kabinett.” I suspect this will be delightful for at least another 15 years, and assuming it breaks out of its “cocoon” in timely fashion could become a real classic.” 90+/100 pts
