Lazy Creek Vineyards Gewürztraminer Anderson Valley Estate 2008

Member Review by barri0s1872:

A bit reserved in the nose, very hard to get much out of this one: some smokey-salmon, herb, rose, and toy plastic type nose. Pretty dark in color, a little hot, high acidity, some medium body, but overall too restrained.

Lazy Creek Vineyards is named for the meandering creek that runs through the 95-acre ranch located four miles west of Philo in Anderson Valley. A pleasant detour off Highway 128, Lazy Creek's narrow, dirt road overgrown with rambling bushes and ferns, towering redwoods and oak trees, opens onto the rustic farmhouse, barn, cottages and winery outbuildings with its menagerie of animals, gardens, fruit trees and vineyards -- all welcoming visitors to this truly magical place.

Unlike any other Gewurz I've tasted. Color is pure gold - surprisingly dark. Nose is honey. Nicely balanced and easy to sip.

Gorgeous Gewurz. The color of gold, with a lovely floral nose. Peach and apricot on the palate with a fine minerality. Very nice as an aperitif to start a meal, but has the structure to stand up to food as well.

Bone dry Gewurztraminer from Lazy Creek. This is great with a Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Really begs for food, as it's almost too tight to enjoy on its own.

Steely and bone-dry gewurz, with less of a sweet impression than most local gewurz wines. Medium straw color. Broad citrus aromas, and palate.

A beautiful pale gold in color, our sustainably-farmed 2007 Lazy Creek Vineyards Gewurztraminer from Anderson Valley is a feast for the senses. With rose petal, lychee nut and delicate perfume aromas, lively ruby red grapefruit and brown spice flavors are broad and full on the palate. Completely dry with a hint of minerality, this full-bodied, Alsatian-style wine has a lush, velvety texture with a clean finish.

This Gewürztraminer may be unlike any other you have tasted.
