Honeyed aromas with flavors of apricot and honey. Surprisingly lightweight frame--good for those who find Gewurztraminer too overpowering. Best with spicy food, though still a bit off-dry.

A pleasant nose - hints of violets, limes and roses with similar flavours on the palate only more focused and noticeable. Hints of sweetness balance the wine but this is not a full in-yer-face Gewurz some can verge on the soapy, almost violent in intensity and spicy sweetness. This does have a little of the rose and ginger coupled with a suspicion of strawberries but, as expected for a humbly priced wine, is quite gentle and more subtle. http://www.spittoon.biz/what_food_with_a_gewrztraminer.html

Very Bordeaux-like. Aromas of cassis, pencil lead, and green pepper. Smooth, integrated tannins. Plenty of cassis and pepper in the midpalate. Solid effort.
