    When I had the honor of visiting Teutonic with K&L this summer, this Red Blend was offered, and with it, a question. "What do you think this could be?" Everyone knew there was most likely Pinot Noir involved, but everyone was also floored to learn that Gewurztraminer was creating the heady floral aromatics that set this wine apart from the others. Almost dark rosé in color, this wine has incredible lift and energy, with a bright acidity balanced with a pleasantly weighty textural component. Dry and refreshing, with tantalizing minerality, this wine has a very soft tannin and is incredibly easy to drink during any occasion.

    If you are looking for the coolest wine in the store, look no further! This is incredibly unusual and super delicious blend of - get ready! - 80% Gewurztraminer and 20% Pinot Noir! Yup, you read it right. Folks from Teutonic outdone themselves this time creating unique and absolutely tasty wine. We tasted it on our recent buying trip to Oregon. Olga (one of owners) asked us to taste it blind and guess the varieties it's made with. When I smelled the wine I knew right away there has to be some Gewurztraminer. I love this variety and can detect it easily. Wine had gorgeous peach, apricot and floral aromas. But this wine is red, light in texture with charming flavors of cherries and cranberries, spicy notes with lovely freshness and pretty acidity, so it has to be Pinot Noir. I was right about both, but what I didn't know and would never guess is how large the percentage of Gewurztraminer in the blend and it was total surprise to me. I have to admit I was stunned to see how organically these two varieties married each other and definitely complemented each other. I think everybody should try this wine not only for its sheer originality but also because it's truly enjoyably wine that will stay in your memory for a long time.
