Carlos’ Pick: Analemma Gewürztraminer 2013

Anytime a new Gewurtztraminer comes into the shop I have to bring it home to my wife.  So when the Analemma came in I knew I would score some points. What I didn’t realize is how many points I’d score! This wine is amazing! Organically grown in the Columbia Gorge AVA in Oregon from vines that are nearly 50 years old. While you get pear, lime, apricot, and nutmeg on the nose you can also smell water running over rocks, telling you that you are in for some minerality. This Gewurtz is barrel fermented and aged on the lees in neutral oak, so you get great body along with perfectly balance acidity that pairs great with food. If you ever wanted to try this varietal, now is the time. Elegant, complex, and simply beautiful. Like my wife.(Points!)
