Covey Run Gewurztraminer 2007

  • Area: Washington State, Columbia Valley
  • Grape: Gewurztraminer
  • Alcohol: 12%
  • Rating: Black 88 Dilettante 88

Description: Honeysuckle, lychee and citrus on the nose. Nice grapefruit attack that mellows into a white fruit center. Softer than the usual gwertz, it finishes with a good lift and notes of honey drizzled white fruit. At the very end, a gwertz spicyness takes a bow. We liked this one, especially with a hot Panang shrimp.

Price: $8 an excellent deal

Note: Good with hot dishes as it cuts right through a red pepper spice.
