Tasting Notes

What a strangely compelling visit this was, a real panoply of experiences. This has 11.5% alc; it’s “Vom Stein” but not labeled. It isn’t as nutty as the ’98 or ’99 were, and it’s not as spicy as the ’02; instead it is fervidly green, led by verbena, radish, grilled fennel; a curious note of quinine and pickled ginger and parsley root; it has 2004’s herbaciousness and angularity; it’s a salad in a glass. – Terry Theise
