Pierre Sparr 2006 Alsace Geurztraminer Carte d'Or

Deep golden color, I don't know that I've ever seen a young dry wine this color.

Full spicy apple melon smell.

Melon flavor with apple. I don't know what that melon is, but I imagine the spicy flavor is a melon. Just the slightest big off dry.

I don't know why it's been so long since I've had a dry Gewurztraminer, I like this grape. This is an especially nice bottle, even considering that I paid $20.99. It made a companion for a lunch of fried rice and General Tso's chicken from the local Chinese takeout place.
