Many California gewurztraminers are far too sweet for their own good. But this dry white wine from Martin Ray Winery is gripping and intense in a way that reflects the grape variety's roots in Alsace, France. There are flavors of apricot, peach and citrus fruit, with nuances of nutmeg and clove. This ranks among the best American gewurztraminers, and the price is better than reasonable. Drink up over the next year.
