Tasting Notes: Summerland's Dirty Laundry Vineyard makes a stunning three single-vineyard Gewurztraminers - this one, from the winery's oldest plantings of the Germanic varietal, offers an excellent balance of off-dry sweetness and crisp acidity, wrapped nicely in a loving embrace of candied fruit and river rock minerality. Delicate notes of lychee and crushed flowers dance on the nose while the lush palate finishes long with a touch of lingering spice. BC "Goo" has yet to be a proven cellar dweller for long haul development, thus, we recommend you enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2011-2012.
