Wine Spectator Associate Editor Tim Fish blogged about Anderson Valley and his favorite wines from our small appellation. He wrote: "The valley's white wines can be as compelling at the Pinots, particularly crisp and aromatic wines like Pinot Gris and Riesling. ...newcomers like Foursight Wines have become players; its Gewurztraminer Anderson Valley 2009 (89, $20) is intense yet graceful, offering the sort of tart, spicy nuttiness that makes good Gewurz so intriguing. I rated it 90 points, non-blind." Read the entire story by following this link.
