2009 Chateau St Jean Sonoma Gewurtz

This week I drank a 2009 Chateau St Jean gewurtz from Sonoma that ran me about $13.

This was slightly sweeter than the last one (which admittedly prided itself on how dry it was), almost to an apple juice level but not cloyingly sweet.  The notes were your standard gewurtz/riesling, not particularly funky as gewurtzes go.  So many of these gewurtzes say they have notes of lychees, I'm going to have to eat some lychees to get the flavor in my taste buds.

All in all a nice wine for just sipping or with a meal.  I'm thinking maybe shrimp in a cream-based sauce, or even maybe shrimp in a Thai chili-based sauce.
