1996 Pacific Rim Gewurztraminer, Monterey County ($10)

This exceptional gewurztraminer, made by Bonny Doon Vineyards under one of Randall Grahm's many wine aliases, comes about as close to the Alsace style as any California wine can. Most California gewurztraminers tend to be either slightly HTC sweet or quite bitter. This is neither. It is a dry white wine of exceptional length and depth, with flavors of peach, nutmeg, clove and allspice.
