Ellero Gewurztraminer 2009 Central 14.1 % alcohol
N: Delicate and fragrant perfume – no mistaking that this Gewurztraminer! White rose, soft white flesh fruits with white nectarine most noticeable, light spice and a hint of Turkish Delight.
P: A dry wine to begin with followed by whispers of varietal intensity. This is perhaps a food wine for the next 2 years - there seems to be some attention seeking textures that need taming with some gamey cuisine.

Ellero Pinot Noir Pisa Terrace 2009 13.9% alcohol
N: Fruity and varietal with red cherry, sweet cranberry, red apple skin and rhubarb suggestions, low oak influence and light wooded spices.
P: Fruity with raspberry sweet Pinot fragrance; red cherry and light red fruit sweetness. Juicy acidity, light oak influence with lighter tannins easing the palate into a gentle experience; moderate length, light body, light on complexity – well balanced. 3 ½ stars.
