2015 vintage notes

Ovum is one of the brightest rising stars in American winemaking -- whether or not you're a fan of Gewurztraminer, Love Me or Leave Me is simply stunning.

The best domestic Gewurztraminer I've tasted, this stunning wine transcends the confines of the grape. Here, the typical spice, rosewater and lychee notes of Gewurztraminer act as accents to the rich texture and beautiful acidity that drive the wine. From vines plated in 1976 in the Rogue Valley's Gerber Vineyard. - Marcus

93 points from John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "This 2015 Gewürztraminer from Ovum Wines hails from the Gerber Vineyard and these vines were planted in 1976. The wine comes in at 12.8 percent octane and was finished with seven grams per liter of residual sugar. The bouquet wafts from the glass in lovely and utterly classic blend of lychee nut, rosewater, a touch of spices meats, a nice dollop of soil and a touch of white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with an excellent core of fruit, bright acids, lovely focus and grip and a very long, still quite primary finish. The seven grams of residual sugar simply buffer the acidity here seamlessly and the overall impression is of a bone dry wine. This reminds me a lot of a top young vintage of Trimbach Seigneurs de Ribeaupierre, which is about as high praise as I can offer for young gewürztraminer! Excellent juice. 2016-2030+."
