Gewurz Goes Up

We’ve seen the creep of California Gewurztraminer in both esteem and price. This flight features two current offerings in the mid-twenties$$.

Londer Vineyards Anderson Valley Dry Gewurztraminer 2006
Full-on roses mark the nose of this wine and fruity flavors in the mouth balanced by refreshing acidity. P&B by Larry and Shirlee Londer in Sebastopol 14.2% $23.75 at Traverso’s Londer

DuNah Russian River Valley Blucher Hill Gewurztraminer 2005
A sense of Alsace in this wine, a year older than the Londer – it is a taught and austere wine with complexity. Winegrowers Rich & Diane DuNah, winemaker Greg La Follette P&B in Sebastopol 14.1% $26.95 at Traverso’s DuNah
