2009 Okanogan Gewurtztraminer

okanoganYou don’t see a lot of domestic gewurtztraminer.

To the degree you do see it, it’s probably either Fetzer or Hogue. And while both those mass market bottles are not bad at all, this Washington state product is the best stateside gewurtz I’ve ever had.

Smells and tastes like roses and lychees. Somewhat thick and sweet, but not at all cloying. We had it with asian pork barbecue, and it worked great. Solid buy at $15 or so. Seek it out.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
