Wine Recommendation

Ventana Vineyards

2007 Gewurztraminer
(Arroyo Seco)

Quite ripe aroma of carnations and rose petals; 2 percent residual sugar, so it’s slightly on the sweet side and thus matches well with spicy Thai food. From a vineyard that has traditionally grown some of the best Gewurztraminer in the state.

The Reviewer

Dan Berger

Dan Berger has been reviewing wine for 30 years, always seeking character related to varietal type and regional identity. He has never used numbers to rank wine and doesn’t plan to start any time soon. He believes that weight and concentration aren’t the only worthy aspects of wine and is especially smitten by cool-climate and food-friendly wines that offer distinctiveness.
