Hogue Gewurztraminer 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

We let our Gewurztraminer attain a high level of ripeness before picking. The resultant wine has aromas of lychee and rose petal. The rich palate is medium-bodied, with lychee, true varietal flavors and a spiciness characteristic of Gewurztraminer.The winemakers suggest pairing the wine with Thai curries or dishes with a sweet peanut sauce.

I guess that I am not a fan of sweet wine, and this was sweet. Too sweet for my liking. Then again, I like the intensity of espresso straight up, so I might not be the best judge. The wine did have notes of apricot and peach, nice smooth finish.

Soft and spicy, offering cinnamon, clove, lychee and pear flavors that glide easily through a charming, lightly sweet finish. Drink now.

Clean as a freshwater spring, this white is slate-mineral at its core, ringed by a honeyed peach nectar at the edges. It finishes tight, with that honeyed buzz that will smoke up roast pork.

Tropical fruit nose, particularly bananas, and also some cinnamon aromas. Lemons, grapefruit and spritz in the mouth; there is definite weight to the body. However, on the tail end of the palate and into the finish therersquo;s a detracting burn. Best with Chinese takeout.

Very fine, full and fruity, this is a remarkably flavorful wine. It captures just a hint of the floral/soapy side of the grape, but brings in delicious fruit flavors of peach and pear and melon and more, a luscious mix that continues to resonate right on through a powerful finish. It's just slightly off-dry, but not really sweet.

Crisp, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc from the Pacific Northwest. Always delicious, always a value…a perennial best buy!

Soft and appealing for its pretty pear and orange peel flavors, hinting at floral notes on the finish.

Fruity and clean, it's made for take-out Thai food and summer deck parties. Chill it and swill it.
