fantastic bargain
This does not taste like a gewurztraminer.  It tastes like a riesling, an excellent riesling; since I love riesling, I loved this wine.  A little off dry, rather like a spatlese.  Bouquet was especially notable -- I could smell it in my glass three feet away.  I plan to buy more.

How sweet it isn't...
Much, much less sweet and focused than anticipated, extremely pale and somewhat thin. A pleasantly rewarding quaff but just not my idea of a Gewurztraminer...

What a nice surprise this was given my poor track record with Cupcake wines. While certainly not a wine that I would consider a classic gewurztraminer by any means, the cupcake varietal relies upon its ability to mimic a riesling in almost every respect. Stone fruit immediately hits the palate with a very gradual and subtle transition into the spicier elements that one would expect to find in a gewurztraminer. Tiny hints of petroleum follow on the palate to make up what I would consider a perfect option for anyone looking for a sweet riesling. Would I swim in it? If I find myself in desperate need of a dip when I can’t find the pools I am accustomed to, I might have to sneak my way into these unfamiliar waters.
