Imported by Triage Wines, Seattle WA.
Five years on tasting.
This is AP#13.
Straw. The ’10s have shown to be many things: overt, concentrated, vibratory, dramatic, hyperactive. These are just a few! Harmony will prove more elusive; with freakish acidity levels only time will tell if the ’10s come into balance.
This Steinmetz is an exception. She’s drinking beautifully now, transparent and well defined, suave without the slickness, elegantly rendered yet with stature. Sponti beginnings, then linden flower, mutsu, pear, balsam. The acidity is ripe and round. Unadorned finish, mineral shavings and quartzite. Shows more petroleum after day one so perhaps not for keeping. Now – 2018.
