Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2007

Pure, high-pitched aromas of smoked meat, cinnamon, rose petal and minerals. Fairly dry but rich and classic, with lovely harmonious acidity giving shape and thrust to the fruit, spice and mineral flavors. Youthfully tight but very pure and vibrant. Conveys a sense of lurking power. Finishes long and spicy, with a hint of licorice. This sample was slow to open, and I suspect this wine will shut down soon in the bottle. Meyer calls '05 his best vintage for gewurztraminer since '89 but notes that he did not make any Brand.
