2008 Hogue Cellars Gewürztraminer
Sometimes it is just hard to beat Hogue for those under $10 daily whites. This one again falls into this category, and was a great pleasure. Nice dark grassy amber color in the glass, with a nice nose of citrus, sugar cane, and honeysuckle, and pear.
On the palate, this is plenty smooth and refreshing, with more citrus notes and just a bit of pear and passion fruit. The finish is short, and not all that complex, but at this price, what more could you ask for. Once again, another nice summer quaffer for under $10 bones. 85 points. Cheers! -F. Scott

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
