Foris Gewürztraminer Rogue Valley 2011

Member Review by Mary Margaret McCamic:

Pronounced aromatics - very classically Gewurztraminer with sweet spices, roses, and a hint of grapefruit. Soft and full in the mouth, with fruit notes that echo the nose. Very tasty.

Affordable, solid Gewurztraminer that paired well with Japanese fare.

I think this is an amazing Gewürztraminer for the price, perfect for pairing with spicy Asian cuisine. Love the acidity, crispness, spiciness, and fruit. I picked it up for $12.99 + tax locally.

Wonderful Alsation nose, of lychee, roses, spice. Unctous texture that coats ones mouth, but with a balanced acidity which rounds out the finish nice. Great value for $10+/- [NR]

Citrus blossom, orange peel, wildflower honey and a hint of nutmeg are aromatically enticing. Beautifully balanced flavors of pineapple, guava, nectarine and a trace of ginger spice are rich yet restr

Wine Tasting NotesClassic, pure aromas of lychee nuts, rose petals, and waxed lemons. Immediately spicy on the palate. Very ripe fruit stands out as almost sweet, though the wine is very dry. Dusty minerals and crisp acidity provide wonderful focus for this exuberant version of classic Alsatian Gewrztraminer. This will no doubt provide excellent drinking and increased complexity over the next few years with wonderful potential to further develop in the cellar.
