Tasting:

    He said: Just an okay Gewurztraminer at best. Very slight cloudiness; a floral bouquet (like the unique aroma of a flower shop) that continues into the full sweet taste, with quite a long finish. This was very inexpensive wine that was disappointing.

    She said: Strong fragrant bouquet. Full bodied, very sweet flavor with a long finish. It was like drinking strong fragrant flowers, rich and heavy like gardenias.

    Comments: Just a side note: We’re generally not into sweet wines with the exception of pairing Riesling with hot spicy food or sweet deserts.
