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.

I had the Chateau Ste Michelle Chardonnay a while ago, and I had hopes their Gewurztraminer would be better, as I have had one great Gewurztraminer, but reading your review it really does not sound like it.

Have you tried any of the other Chateau Ste Michelle wines?
