Producer Wine Name Varietal Reviewer Rating Vintage Cost
Madro├▒a Vineyards    Gew├╝rztraminer Mike Taylor Very good  2004  $10.00
An enjoyable Gewurztraminer is the 2004 release from Madro˝a. With an off-dry style, the wine has 0.3% residual sugar - no where near sticky - and very food friendly. The wine shows a clear lemon yellow color. The nose has subtle aromas of honeysuckle, fig and hazelnuts. The palate is coated with a full bodied wine with a velvety consistency that offers up spicy flavors. The acidity is fresh and lively and keeps the sugars in check while providing the food-friendly backbone. The wine parts with a warm finish.
