04 Carmen, Curico Valley Gewurtztraminer

Carmen boils with the spicy alcohol nose typical to the varietal, but carries a strange -- albeit pleasant -- underlying scent and flavor of banana taffy. Lychee. Tingly, minty mouthfeel highlights the drying acid which is just bold enough to keep these tropical flavors from being cloying.
