Gewürztraminer is difficult to capture, on the vine it will go from pitch-perfect to over-ripe in a number of hours. As wine, it has an amazingly wide breadth of characteristics that it can display, it can be spice-driven, floral, sweet, bone-chillingly dry, clear, orange or pink. When it is done well it is a thing of rare, fleeting beauty that will last decades, much like the memory of a beautiful woman met once and disappeared.
A very golden hue in the bottle, this bottling is loaded with ripe cantaloupe and peach on the nose. The palate is quite viscous in texture and yet simultaneously chalky, with generous baked stone-fruit flavors.
