About This Wine

As a joke, in the late 1980s Ulrich Stein planted only a few rows of Cabernet Sauvignon, high up in his Grand Cru Palmberg vineyard. The point was, almost more than anything else, to annoy the German wine authorities and to push the boundaries of what was "acceptable" in the Mosel. Over 20 years later, as a result of the dramatic changes in the climate, the vines are now ripening fully and the wine is layered and powerful. It remains, of course, very much a cool-climate wine, with blue fruit more than ripe red fruit, all wrapped tightly around an assertive, mineral and tannic frame. The 2017 is one of Stein's greatest; a fascinating example of one of the most extreme "mountain Cabernets" in the world. Stein has reserved this wine for us, for America, at a massive discount so that all the money raised will go directly to help the wine communities so affected by the devastating fires.
