2007 Firestone Gewurtztraminer

Over the weekend I drank a 2007 Firestone Gewurztraminer from California's Santa Ynez Valley just north of Los Angeles.  (I'm going to use the French spelling so I don't have to mess with the umlaut.)  This ran me about $13.

This one much more body than the first one.  Very fruity, either apple or pear notes.  Not terribly "spicy" but that's ok.  I drank some with both a grilled pork chop and a snack later one evening, and it went well with both.  I probably could have drunk the whole bottle at a sitting if I hadn't watched myself.

In short: very nice wine, and it's close enough to a Riesling that people who think they don't like Gewurztraminers should like it too.
