Toro Run Gewürztraminer 2015: $17 Good+

The Toro Run Gewürztraminer (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $17 [Good+] is a well made wine.  Flavors are true to the variety, with modest to moderate concentration.  This wine will appeal to those who like their Gewürztraminer on the sweet side.  It is easy enough to quaff.  Drink it as an aperitif.

Medium lemon in color, the aromas are true Gewürztraminer, with medium intense scents of lychee, pear, citrus, honey, spice and earth.  Medium bodied, medium sweet, with sufficient acidity, balance is good.  Modest to medium intense flavors of lychee, pear, rose, and just a little spice have an open knit and affable character.  This wine is easy to drink.  The finish is gentle and easy-going, with a jot of spice, a light smack of the lips, and good length.  January 2017
