The Alsation sensation Gewurtztraminer thrives in the mild summer temperatures and constant cooling Pacific fog banks of Mendocino County. This bottling offers heady aromas of spice, apricot, lychee nuts, tropical fruits and rose petals. On the palate, the medium-bodied wine exhibits lemon zest, tea, ripe pear, peaches and an engaging minerality. Drink it with spicy Thai or Indian cuisine, grilled or fresh fruit, aged or cured smoked meats or fish, charcuterie and cheeses. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, Dorignac's and Langenstein's in Metairie. Drink it at: Mr. B's Bistro and La Cote Brasserie. — Brenda Maitland
