Kaimira Brightwater Gewurztraminer 2009 $23 ★★★★★

At 14.5% alc I was expecting this wine to have a hot, stringy, slightly resinous character but this wine delivers quite the opposite.  It hits the sweet spot between musky floral notes, rich, ripe, peachy characters and a long, elegantly spicy finish.  It’s exotically perfumed with a seam of sweetness and one glass is just not enough.  www.kaimirawines.com
