 Tasted by gabird on 5/14/2015 & rated 89 points: Loved it! Hint of honey suckle and minerals but not too sweet. Wonderful clean wine but would serve so well with fruit, cheese or spicier items. So balanced.

 Tasted by bacchus of knockholt on 3/13/2015 & rated 88 points: Flowery, not typical Gerwurtz nose. It's dry, which is good, but a little austere. The lychee fruit is there but not as rich and intense as some. As far as Gerwurtz goes this is fresh and vibrant. (263 views)
 Tasted by Magners on 7/29/2014: Fresh, peppery, well-developed on the palate with typical notes of peaches, white flowers, soap, honey, hay and white pepper. This wine has absolutely benefited from cellaring and feels very rich and complex. I would drink now if I had more bottles. (935 views)
 Tasted by Steve&Carolyn on 6/27/2014 & rated 85 points: We liked it (because we like all Gewürztraminers) but this is not the best of the breed that we've had. Fragrances of lychees and honeysuckle. Somewhat unctuous on the palate with flavors of apples, lychees, and a bit of spice. (1043 views)
 Tasted by carmanyd on 6/11/2014 & rated 89 points: One of my favorite Gewurz wines. Very minerally clean finish. (1024 views)
 Tasted by Praxis on 4/1/2014 & rated 89 points: Clear, light golden-yellow in appearance with a sensual nose of yellowish fruits accented with an enticing floral lift. The palate is well-balanced, honeyed, and a certain fruitiness that is reminiscent of apples cider, pineapples, summer peaches, cooked pears and ends with a very satisfying and refreshing finish. A very "un-gewurztraminer-like" gewurztraminer but enjoyable nonetheless. (1796 views)
 Tasted by wondersofwine on 1/20/2014 & rated 88 points: 14% abv. Pale gold color with greenish tinge. Fruit and spice on the nose--almost a spiced peach note and some ginger and mace. Tastes a bit sweet. Stayed pleasurable through three evenings. I had it with chicken and broccoli one evening and also with shrimp. I was surprised by how well this held its quality for more than five years after harvest. It still has some acidic zip. (1560 views)
 Tasted by Burgessdpilot on 12/31/2013 & rated 92 points: Was so-so last time. Excellent tonight not sure why the difference. Floral, fruity, perfect balance. Delicious. (1016 views)
 Tasted by hankj on 9/24/2013 & rated 90 points: Really nice right now - the 5 years has done this bottle well. Could have gone a lot longer too.

Petes in Seattle has 2010 at 16 bucks right now. Probably worth a half case to sit on for 5-10 years. (1396 views)
 Tasted by 27greywolf on 6/30/2013 & rated 83 points: Not what I was expecting in a Gewürztraminer, but enjoyable nonetheless. (1624 views)
 Tasted by Beps on 5/29/2013 & rated 91 points: very intersting bouquet, with white flowers notes and green apples.
Persistent enough.
Served with a special plate of pork with bacon, apples and onion roasted all together, very perfect combination, taste continue in the mouth as a concert.
great value for money! (1577 views)
 Tasted by wdlohr on 4/10/2013 & rated 88 points: This wine smells of apples and apricots but it is not flabby but tight and tense with a broad layer of honey for balance. It went well with Thai food. (1699 views)
 Tasted by UTPK on 1/13/2013: Same as before. Fresh to be a gewurtz. (2103 views)
 Tasted by ASW on 12/3/2012 & rated 88 points: Its a typical Gewurts on the sweet side. Honey and peaches, a little bid oddball and held up well with the asian food. Fine value. 14% alcohol which we all really noticed, it added to the fun of dinner. Rich amber color. (1844 views)
 Tasted by primitivo on 10/15/2012 & rated 73 points: Pale yellow, nice peachy citrusy bouquet, quite pronounced legs which caused me to check the alcohol content (it was 14%, really high for an Alsace Gewurztraminer), alcohol present in taste, some burn on finish. This is just not right, won't buy again. (1767 views)
 Tasted by jeff nowak on 9/1/2012 & rated 90 points: by the glass at a restaurant, $9. clean, fresh, distinctive, a lovely offering for any wine list. recommended. (2368 views)
 Tasted by wdlohr on 8/27/2012 & rated 90 points: This wine has a greenish hue and aroma of tangy green apple. It tastes of rich fruit backed by pepper with a perfect balance. (1683 views)
 Tasted by cweiss on 7/10/2012: Just what it should be. Dry, varietally correct, well-balanced. (1637 views)
 Tasted by Basicallyjones on 6/28/2012 & rated 88 points: For $11, this is exactly what i was expecting. Floral, fruit, some honey, light footed, but a fine mineral backbone. Very nice with a great QPR. (1383 views)
 Tasted by Jason Rzutkiewicz on 6/28/2012 & rated 89 points: Drink Alsace - Wines of Pure Expression (TasteLive.com): (14%) Electric nose with loads of sweet peach floral blossom aromas. The palate starts bright, juicy and spiced with zested citrus fruits before turning to a spiced, lingering, drying finish that seems to go on and on. Fantastic stuff here. Pricey at $20+ but well worth spending an evening with…

 Tasted by Yme on 6/6/2012 & rated 87 points: Colour was slightly deeper yellow than what we expected for its young age. The tropical fruit nose of lychee and jackfruit was obvious but restraint at the same time. Medium bodied. Closer to dry than off dry. Structured palate with subtle tropical fruits, apple and a hint of lemon. Short to moderate length. Match quite well with South Indian Curry. (1494 views)
 Tasted by dssmith on 5/2/2012 & rated 75 points: In my opinion this is a very low level Gewurztraminer. It does not appear to be sourced from a specific vineyard. It has that typical slightly fruity/citrus flavor of an Alsatian wine but little depth of flavor. Its main advantage is low price, but if one enjoys Alsatian wine there are better choices for just slightly more money. (1655 views)
 Tasted by Nyindallas on 3/6/2012 & rated 84 points: Pale straw color. Nose opens with oriental spices, lychee, pineapple, a touch of pear. On the palette smokey lemon, minerals with a touch of apple. Very little fruit taste. Would only suggest for the very dry wine lover. (1814 views)
 Tasted by Outplaying on 3/6/2012: A pleasant wine with nice aromatics including floral lychee and tropical fruits. A little simple on the palate but overall this was pretty good. By the glass at Harry's Seafood. (1831 views)
 Tasted by Harley1199 on 2/28/2012: Profound golden colour
Full aromatic nose with lychees, ripe pineapple, ginger, apricots, pears, ... amazing aromas.
Dry? Well, Pretty sweet and with a long aftertaste, good length.
At this level, a very good Gtraminer after all.

Color dorado profundo.
Nariz plenamente aromática con lichis, piña madura, jengibre, albaricoques, peras, ... aromas deliciosos.
¿Seca? Bueno bien dulce con un largo postgusto y una buena persistencia.
En este nivel, después de todo un buen Gtraminer. (2101 views)
