1996 German Riesling Spätlesen

Recently I've opened two spatleses from the 1996 vintage that have turned out to be all that this vintage promised when they were first released. Blazing acidity has kept them fresh and lively and the opulent fruit has mellowed and deepened. My mentions were buried in dining reports on my regional board, but I thought I'd link to them here. How are others finding this vintage in the fullness of time?
