2012 Zind-Humbrecht - Gewurztraminer
This one has finesse! Citrus and spice are prominent on the nose. Lychee and a stony minerality dominate the palate. The finish has a minor bitter note reminiscent of orange zest and tangerine.

2009 Zind-Humbrecht - Riesling Clos Windsbuhl
I love the minerality and acidity of this Riesling! Notes of peach and grapefruit on the palate. It comes across as off dry, probably due to the ripeness of the fruit, but in reality it is very dry. The finish is clean and refreshing.

2012 La Crema - Chardonnay Sonoma Coast
Pale gold in color. There were notes of citrus, sweet caramel, and buttered toast on the nose. The acidity and fruit were nicely balanced on the palate, which was followed by the delightful bitterness of orange zest and a hint of cool mint tea on the finish.

2007 Zind-Humbrecht - Riesling Clos Windsbuhl
I dearly love this wine! It's color is pale gold and it is packed with citrus and minerality! There is an unmistakable note of lime zest on the palate accompanied by a wonderful salinity. This is a nicely structured and balanced wine with a number of years left to enjoy. The finish was fresh and clean.

2011 Expression 38 - Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard
The wine was wonderfully aromatic and dark garnet in color. There were notes of ripe raspberry, blueberries, tobacco, toast, and sweet vanilla cream on the nose. There was also the presence of a subtle smokiness. The ripe fruit, round tannins, and a crisp acidity followed on the palate. The finish was that of cola, nice but not lingering.
