Estate Bottled - Russian River Valley $24/375ml

97 MCFADDEN
2011 Gewurztraminer
Mendocino $16
This is a much fresher example of the 2009. Very consistent in floral spices/blossoms, honeysuckle, white pepper and hints of ginger that complement peach, apricot, red apple, pear and stone fruit. Crisp, clean and very refreshing, this wine is well-balanced and offers a wonderful lingering finish.

96 MCFADDEN
2013 Gewurztraminer
Potter Valley - Mendocino $16
Aromas of floral spices/blossoms, honeysuckle, white pepper and hints of ginger complement peach, green/red apple, apricot, pear and stone fruit. Crisp, clean and very refreshing, this dry wine is well-balanced and offers a wonderful lingering tart finish.

94 MCFADDEN
2009 Gewurztraminer
Mendocino $16
Floral spices/blossoms, honeysuckle, white pepper and hints of ginger complement peach, apricot, red apple, pear and stone fruit. Off-dry, this is a mature wine showing nice fruit and secondary characteristics leading to a pretty lingering finish. (Tasted 3/1/13)
