Outstanding dry style American Gewurz, especially for the $. Medium gold with pink reflections and medium plus viscosity. Mega aroma bomb, smells of leechie, sweet ruby red grapefruit, potpourri and lemon verbena. On the palate, this wine tastes like perfume smells: potpourri, lemon zest, a mouth coating oiliness followed by crisp acidity. finish is long, you feel like your exhaling potpourri for a minute or so after. Went profoundly well with sage butternut and chanterelle pizza. definitely a sipper. Drink with water on side. — 2 years ago
look: pale ruby red core with slightly garnet rim. medium viscosity.
smell: medium intensity aromas of roasted red bell pepper, allepo pepper flake, raspberry sauce, roasted jalapeno. overall, sweet and ripe fruit smells followed by slight iron-like gravel note.
taste: medium + acidity, nearly high acidity, medium - tannin, flavors of smoked tomato, sour cherry, ending with a note of sweet dried/roasted pepper.
profile: flavor is 'bursty' and drops out quickly and then hangs in a very subtle low way on the palate.
purchased with Somm Select. honestly, it could have cellared a few more years. — 2 years ago
