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.
