    July 5, 2017 - Nice color- fairly deep. Stone fruit, maybe petrol, then there's the wonderful spice. Lovely tropical and stone fruit on the palate. Fruity-sweet on the palate. Lengthy finish.

    November 17, 2015 - Followed for three days open. Deep golden color, clear and sound with quick legs. Very aromatic bouquet extends out 2 feet from the glass. Layers of raw honey, quince, apricot, flint, and the longer it's open, the more of a nuttiness develops in the bouquet. The palate is medium weight, having a lot of substance yet still light on its feet. Achieves what many Gewurz's cannot as far as disguising its alcoholic heat. This is smooth and gentle on the throat yet there's no denying the wine packs the textbook punch of the variety. Very long finish and I think it is in a great window now. I might let my last one sleep another year or two to see what develops. 5+13+17+8 = 93

    March 11, 2014 - PICCOLI SOMMEILLER CRESCONO; 2/26/2014-6/20/2014 (B&B CASA DI CLARA): Sempre un grande piacere bere Zind Humbrecht! Giallo dorato infuocato. Naso pieno, sferico, tanta camomilla, calore e zuccheri. E' tutto così netto, a fuoco, un frutto caldo tropicale, tanto miele ma non mieloso e smielato. Manca forse di un pelino di acidità delle annate più fresche, ma
    Me lo immagino con un bel plateau de fromage a pasta molle!!
    Una delizia!

    November 5, 2012 - Some may object to an Alsatian wine this sweet, but I loved it. The sweetness plus the spice of great gewurztraminer grapes with just a hint of something like botrytis makes this an exceptional wine.
