Winemaker Kim Engle's wines always stand out in a flight, and this curiously spicy, sepia-toned Gewürztraminer is no exception. Aromatic, with notes of orange rind, rose petal and potpourri, it's also intensely flavored with black tea and spice that are pleasantly astringent. Not a classic Gewürztraminer by any means, but uniquely delicious.
