Firestone Vineyard 2007 Gewurztraminer

Vineyard: Firestone Vineyard

Rating: A-

Some friends came over for dinner tonight and were kind enough to bring over a bottle of the Firestone Vineyard 2007 Gewurztraminer. To the best of my recollection, this was my first experience with Firestone Vineyard, and I was quite impressed with this wine.

This Gewurztraminer is golden honey yellow in color. The nose has citrus and herbal notes, with a hint of fruity sweetness.

The Firestone Gewurztraminer has a tangy citrus acidity and a juicy mouthfeel. Soft herbal notes and spiciness compliment the citrus. There is a hint of honey-sweetness as well. The finish has a pleasant juiciness with some lingering spice. Overall, this is a very drinkable wine that even those who shy away from Gewurztraminers should enjoy.
