Friday, September 27, 2013 - Dinner at Peking Duck House, NYC the night before Lily's Bat Mitzvah. Opened in celebration of being from the same vintage as Lily and like the Bat Mitzvah girl this was beautiful, sophisticated and amazing! Dark gold in color with reddish tones this wine is a powerhouse that worked extremely well with the richness of the perfectly prepared Peking Duck. Rangen first and Gewurz second as was expected. Full of the peat and minerality so typical of Rangen and with a Gewurz spiciness matched with a wild tropical note. Full bodied with a seemingly endless finish this wine seems to have entered a beautiful drinking plateau that challenges the great '98 and should remain drinking at this same level for a good 15-20 years. A stunning wine in honor of a stunning young woman! 50+14+14+10+9.5=97.5
