This impeccable offering from Casa Marin is in the lean, elegant, cool-climate style of the winery. The 2009 Cartagena Gewuerztraminer displays an alluring nose of baking spices, lychee, and pit fruits. Crisp and vibrant on the palate with ample spicy fruit, this outstanding value will drink nicely for several more years.
