From The Winery: 12.8% alcohol. Mendocino County AVA.
Impressions/Notes: The Gewurz Gewürztraminer is produced by Healdsburg, CA based Alexander Valley Vineyards. The 2012 version of this wine is all about the nose. It boasts a wide range of aromas–lemon, cantaloupe, white pepper, crushed gravel, ginger, and spice. In the mouth, it falls flat. Literally. The minimal acid presence and ultra-dry mouthfeel do not compliment each other. This is certainly not a wine that I would buy again. Fortunately, there are some nice domestic Gewürztraminers available at a comparable price point.
Rating: Not Too Shabby (83), 2/5 Value
