Oregon rarely gets credit for how good its Gewürztraminers can be. This is a perfect example: a classic, varietal nose shows citrus blossom, baby powder and lychee; it's both fragrant and slightly exotic. Clean and creamy in the mouth, its floral flavors have elegant textures and surprising length. Best Buy. —P.G.
