Very candied nose with lots of lychees, mangoes, and peaches; the palate, very creamy, fleshy and fruity, with baskets of ripe tropical fruits plus some licorice and minerals; the finish, longer with more aeration in the glass; missing some complexity and structure though; nevertheless, still very enjoyable as a dessert wine; overall, 91-92 points.
CT Texas IV - A Hill Country Treat; 5/18/2012-5/19/2012 (Austin, Texas): My first real time where I "get" Gewurztraminer. Great nose of lychee, ripe pear, spice, and some floral element that I can't place. On the palate rich and fruity, so much so that it seems sweet with lychee, pears, and spice. After that big fruit comes a bone dry finish. Really really good wine and a tremendous pairing with the sea bass. Yet another quest begins.
Served from magnum. Opened and served immediately. Revisited once after about an hour.
Yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of honeysuckle, soaked pears and wet stones. Flavors of apricot, honey and soaked pears. Medium to bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold, especially in magnum format. Very good wine that is drinking really well right now.
