This is a delicious Gewurztraminer from France. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouth feel.
Very nicely balanced with enough fruits for the acidity.
This 4 year old aged nicely so far, and would be nice to revisit it in 3 years, and see how it evolved.
Last year I had the 2018 vintage, and it is much nicer with some age.
Easy drinking and good by itself or with food. I had it all by itself by the pool.

The 2019 Chardonnay Wester Reach is a terrific appellation level wine. Crushed rocks, lemon confit, slate and green orchard fruit all grace this taut, nervy Russian River Chardonnay. The 2019 is beautifully done. The blend of sites is 30% DuMOL Estate, 22% Dutton-Morelli, 16% Flax Estate, 16% Heintz and 16% Ritchie. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, September 2021)
