Tasting Note: Cherry Creek “Lynn Alexander”

One of the wineries I visited last year out towards Jackson.  This is a 50/50 blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer from a single vineyard property.

Cherry Creek “Lynn Alexander” Old Woodstock #2 (NV) Michigan

Color: light gold/brass.

Aroma: fruity and spicy – the Gewurztraminer dominates.

Taste: a pleasant tingle of gooseberry and kiwi, bone dry, with racy acidity.  There are also notes of lime zest and minerality; the Riesling is foremost.

Pleasant all-around, but you have to like your wines on the tart side to appreciate this.
