91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
Pale yellow. Pure, highly nuanced nose combines floral oils, smoked meat and cinnamon; very gewurztraminer. Moderately sweet but juicy, with solid acidity, a tactile old-vines quality and enticing spiciness framing the yellow fruit flavors. Finishes quite suave and long, with the wine's 15.1% alcohol nicely buffered by extract. Measurable acidity is just five grams per liter, but Meyer swore that this cuvee had even lower acidity in the brisk 1996 vintage.
