Chateau Ste. Michelle Gewurztraminer 2008 review by (PB)
Barely straw hued with nice aromas of Lime, ripe pineapple and lemon touches.
Palate-- Off dry, with solid acid but a bit much on the alcohol that overshadows the fruit. It has a juicy core but fleeting flavors. I think my wife paid around $8 and it's OK if you're desperate for a reasonable facsimile of Gewurztraminer. But I'd pass, pay $2 more for Fetzer or Covey Run and get some joy.
