2012 EnRoute - Pinot Noir Les Pommiers
The wine was still a bit tight. Deep purple in the glass with an expressive nose of fruit and tar. It was enjoyable, but could benefit from additional time before uncorking the next bottle.

2010 Zind Humbrecht Gewurztraminer Vieilles Vignes VT
This was the group favorite! Such finesse! Medium gold in the glass with lovely notes of citrus and melon on the nose. The fruit, minerals, and acid were wonderfully balanced. Loved the long, lingering finish!

2010 Flat Creek - Muscat D'Arancia
Pale gold in the glass with orange cream notes on the nose. Nice citrus notes on the palate accompanied by a racy acidity! Moderate, clean finish. Very enjoyable on a warm Summer's eve.

2007 Zind-Humbrecht - Riesling Clos Windsbuhl
The years have been kind to the 2007 Riesling from the Zind Humbrecht Clos Windsbuhl vineyard. Classic citrus flavors and minerality characterize this wine, accompanied by a wonderfully balanced acidity. The finish was long, smooth, and clean! We enjoyed this vintage with a Cajun Chicken and Sausage Jambalaya!
