No stars on this bottling - just the regular Paterberg Spatlese served along side a spicier than expected paneer makhani.
The wine has developed some significant aged notes. This isn't surprising, as Strub does not make the longest lived wines, and the Paterberg is not the longest aging of his wines. That said the brown spices in the food really worked with the developed elements in the wine. The moderate sweetness handled the spice of the dish, and the overall impression was a wine that was totally ready to drink and drink up. I see no immediate danger of the '01 Paterberg falling apart, but no benefit to further cellaring.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
