Firestone Gewürztraminer Santa Ynez Valley 2009
This is an ideal sipping wine, with alluring notes of lychee, mandarin orange and nutmeg on the nose. Citrus flavors of grapefruit and bergamot emerge on the mouth, which is enlivened by a compelling acid note. Quenching citrus notes balance nicely with hint of sweetness on a clean, refreshing finish.
Gentle fruit tastes to this wine - you can enjoy the flavor without it being overpowering. Very mild to no aftertaste, and not bitter or spicy at all. It was a little bold direct-from-the-bottle, but smoothed out nicely as it was aired.
