Still a benchmark for California Gewürz. Cool climate expression with excellent focus, acidity and length. Lychee, tropical notes and ample spice character. Freshness and lift are impressive.

Tasted like it still had some residual sugar. Very fun and enjoyable, but I'm not sure I understand the hype

Really well done. A hard sell, but a delicious wine that would make a turkey dinner special.

Beautiful white pepper, strong acidity. Extremely refreshing alternative to sauv blanc or gruner.

2013- still the quintessential CA Gewurtztraminer. Orange blossom aromas, flavors of dried apricot, white pear, and a pleasant waxy finish that keeps it dry. Lovely.

2014 - new vintage. Fresh - lime spice and just a touch of fusel. Getting there but still very young and sassy.

Pale light yellow white in color. Honey, white peach and linalool in nose, lychee bark flavor with citric, cream soda and slight banana and carrot finish. Not the best vintage (lacking acidity?) but another superior GT from Navarro.

Typical floral Gewurztraminer nose of rose and lychee and other flowers. On the palate, round with decent body, dry, very pretty, not overbearing, nice acidity, well balanced. Not a fan of Gewurztraminer, but if I had to drink one, I could drink this.
