Pale lemon in color.
Pretty nose of white flowers, honey, lemons, spices, tropical fruits, red apples, honeysuckle, guava and white pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.
Dry to off dry on the palate with citrus, apples, pears, honeydew, black pepper, bitter herbs, light vegetables and spices.
Spicy finish with light almonds and black pepper.
This is a very tasty Gewürztraminer from Anderson Valley. Elegant and rich. Fruit forward and spicy.
Showing nice complexity with a smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking and good for parties.
Nicely balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars, and good by itself as a sipping wine.
Way too easy to drink this, so you better watch out, as the high alcohol will creep up on you really quickly.
I paired it with beautiful view.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Nose has cherry jam, wet leather, wet leaves, alcohol and dried cranberries.
Palate has under-ripe tart cherry, dried raspberries, dry leather and faint dry soil notes.
Not holding as well as the 2005 enjoyed over two evenings earlier this week. If improvement comes at 24H, notes might be updated. Decanted 90m. — a month ago
Well if you don’t want to spring for the real stuff this is a great alternative: med sized bubbles, mild yeast note, golden apples & lemon verbena, some mineral - pleasant & unobtrusive, zippy bracing acidity w/citrus on mid palate leading to clean finish. — 4 days ago
Pale lemon, aromas of Stone and citrus fruits, with floral and sweet spice notes. On the palate apple, peach & melon with citrus zest and toasty vanilla oak notes. Smooth long finish, well balanced, nice lively acidity, ending with citrus, vanilla oak and mineral character. — 2 days ago
v17. Very good, terroir driven wine. Soft smoked meat nose. Fresh, rich, fresh crushed black cherry and black berry fruit. Long, slightly astringent, zippy, earthy finish. Nicely balanced. — 11 days ago
Very pleasing at this stage of maturity, dominated by brown tones of stems, forest floor and licorice root. The fruit shows a muted level of dark raspberry. A nice level of acidity brings it all together — 9 days ago
I’m not a “natural wine” devotee necessarily, but I am a Martha devotee.
Out to The Meadow is almost always one of my favorites in her line up. Chenin driven, this wine shows the variety’s funkier side on the nose (honeysuckle, wet wool, hay, gray stones). On the palate, it balances sweet (honey, honeysuckle) and sour (incredible tart, barely ripe green apple, white nectarine); fruity, vegetal and just the right amount of bitter (at least for those of us with an bias towards Italian whites) with Vermentino’s unmistakable salty fennel/herbal/grapefruit pith on the finish. Have no idea what “green hungarian” and “chasselas doré” add to the blend, but I trust the master and her modern interpretation of what a century old California field blend would have looked and tasted like. — 14 days ago
