von Othegraven, Auction Kanzemer Altenberg Riesling Spätlese #7 Saar 1999

Von Othegraven Auction Spatlese 1999 #1

Imported by Edgeway Beverages, Chatsworth, CA.

Silicon bronze.  Summer has now turned to fall for this von Othegraven.  Quite a bit of evolution; leafy intimations of tea, tobacco and fern.  Fruit runs to tutti frutti and durian.  Baroque, tertiary finish with good intensity.  Trades elegance for a characterful avuncularity.  Now – 2020.
