Vina Esmeralda 2009
This Catalan white from the famous Torres winery is a blend of 85% Muscatel and 15% Gewurztraminer. I would have liked the proportions more in favor of the latter, as the result is assertively floral in the nose, with heavy apple and ripe apricot flavors that verge on the sweet. $9.99.
