Stanza Gewurztraminer 2008 wine review by (PB)

Understated, sweet floral aromas but uncharacteristic for a Gewurz and I would have called it a Chenin Blanc if I had tasted it blind. Very pleasant but not typical.

Palate: Slight bitterness in the mouth and really flabby (meaning lacks acid) making it really kind of yucky. At $10 this is NOT a good wine and should be avoided!

One person's yukky is another person's "I like it"..
Just went and bought another few bottles.

Re: above comment--this certainly can be true and it is certainly true that someone might actually like an objectively "bad" wine. More than likely though, the bottle I had was "bad." This is not uncommon especially if a bottle is cork finished but even with a screw top, a case or even a whole shipment may have been subjected to extremes which the rest of the production were not. The only way to know would be to try another bottle which I would do for my own satisfaction except that I bought this bottle out of state and it is not available in my area of the country. Then again--"anonymous" may just like "Yukky" wine! :)
