Food Pairings for Sumac Ridge Gewürztraminer Private Reserve
Great Value 5 glasses
Mourvedre, Grenache. Mineral and raspberry aromas to this dark wine. Frais de bois and raspberry flavors. Very nice, rich mouthfeel and a concentration of flavors in the midpalate. Chalky, stony finish.
Melon, white flowers, and mandarin peel aromas and flavors. Nice body.
Great perfume, with wonderful fruit and stoniness underneath. Great acidity, too. Honey, apples, melon. Wonderful food wine.
Very attractive dark crimson color. Aromas of dark red fruit, coffee, spice, and earth. Coffee and tobacco were present on the palate, but there was also the taste of red cherry, blackberry, red pepper, and vanilla. The wine is full and smooth in the mouth. The finish is long and satisfying.
For the price I paid (5Euro) this was a decent purchase. Obviously not as complex as other Priorats, but with nine months in barrel this wine has some quality. Decent structure, nice earthiness and some dried fruit components.
Amazing nose on this wine. Big and floral with hints of ripe tropical fruit. Fairly round and rich on the palate. Very interesting wine.
External Reviews for Sumac Ridge Gewürztraminer Private Reserve
Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Mixing blackberry fruit tones with light sniffs of old leather and the tightness of youth, this wine still gets it spot on in its aromas and delivers well in the mouth. It is supple to start in palatefeel, then progress to a firm, tannin-supported spine that demands a fair bit of patience in order for the wine to come out of its rough stance. With depth to spare and focus that is true-to-type, this Zin can be put away with confidence.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.
The 2007 Brunello di Montalcino offers up sweet red cherries, flowers and hard candy in a juicy, approachable expression of Sangiovese. All the elements come together nicely in this tasty medium-bodied Brunello. The 2007 is ideally enjoyed over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2017.
This Australian Shiraz has all the charms of an “Aussie Beauty!” With hints of black currants, blueberries and plum, its flavor is wonderful. Rich earthy tones, not typical of the Barossa Valley, make it even more of a gem. Medium finish that’s smooth on the palate –– a real charmer. Enjoy!
Right off the bat you can tell this is an Australian wine. Big, sweet nose with loads of licorice and black plum. The full-bodied wine is rich on the palate with ripe fruit and American oak. The finish is long and smooth. Will complement a grilled steak. Food pairing: red meats, spicy foods, Asian Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: medium Finish:
You can't go wrong with the German wines from the Wirsching estate. Truly a wine that will make you drool in happiness.
Knebel Winninger Uhlen Riesling Spätlese trocken 2007: Dieser junge Uhlenwein zeigt eine pikante, oftmals fast salzige Mineralität, die durch einen reifen, kraftvollen Körper gemildert wird. Uhlen-Rieslinge brauchen Zeit und sind hochindividuelle, meistens trockene Weine für Kenner, Weine, die eine Auseinandersetzung einfordern. Dieser anspruchsvolle Stil des Uhlen geht aus der Heterogenität der Gesteinsformationen hervor. Diese bestehen aus grauem bis blauen Schiefer, Rotschiefer, verschiedenen Sandsteine mit in der Regel hohen Eisenoxidanteilen, Kalkbändern und Quarziten.

The inky/purple-colored 2007 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau Vieilles Vignes (100% Grenache from the blue clay sectors of Rasteau) is a dense, masculine effort offering oodles of fruit, high glycerin, and unbridled power. Forget this blockbuster for 2–3 years, and drink it over the following 15+.
<p>The Private Reserve 2007 is a white wine, made by Sumac Ridge. Its origin is Okanogan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. It is made from the Gewürztraminer grape and contains a variety of citrus spices. </p>
