04 Sineann, Gewurztraminer Columbia Gorge Celilo Vineyard
The Alsatians might actually prefer this Oregonian version to many of their own. Inspired by the plush, decadent style of Zind-Humbrecth, Sineann's single-vineyard gewurztraminer has a textbook taste profile of spicy lychee, pineapple, and sizzling minerals. But that's typical. What isn't is how these tastes are rendered here, in the medium of what could actually be coconut custard instead of wine.
