Was just given a mother-lode of Riesling for redesigning importer's site. This is the youngest bottle by 20 years.

Mineral, bright, zippy, and the RS is balanced elegantly in this fully-formed beauty of a Riesling. Didn't perceive any of the under-ripe qualities that have affected some other 2013s I've tasted.
