2005 J.W. Morris Gewurztraminer

We had this label’s Riesling yesterday and dumped most of the bottle. I figured I’d open the Gewurz today and see how it is....once again, $4 for the bottle.

Pear and apricot on the nose.

Grapes and apples on the palate with a touch of spice. Much better than the Riesling (not say much honestly), but I’d still say it’s a bit too flabby.

There is a finish with grapes and it leaves a rather unpleasant sticky sugar feel.

So, there you go....halfway through the first glass I thought it might be passable, but the more you have, the less drinkable it is.

Needless to say, these two wines have convinced me never to buy J.W. Morris again.
