    July 22, 2018 - Dark golden color due to age. Quite concentrated. Really powerful nose of honey, melon, and flowers. Palate a bit more subdued. Would have liked a little more acid on this.

    December 6, 2017 - Terrific gewürztraminer. Bought at auction 8 years ago and in my cellar since. Now just getting around to opening. I am, admittedly, a big fan of gewurztraminers in the ZH style. This is not quite as sweet, and has a bit more minerality and litheness relative to many of the ZH wines. One of those wines that screams sweet and yet has dryness on the palate. Classic gewurz lychee and tropical fruits. Rich, but not cloying. Hint of rosewater. just yum. I'd buy more of these if I could. This was a steal at less than $20 I paid.

    August 14, 2017 - Drinking really well. Stone fruits on the nose, a little reminding me of a Riesling. Honey and melon on the palate. Drinking well and has a long drinking window.

    January 31, 2016 - Aged beautifully with dark golden straw color, Amazing bouquet, and full body with secondary flavors. Still fresh but round. Very slight alcohol comes through.
