WHITE WINE OF THE WEEK

Louis Martini 1998 "Russian River" Gewurztraminer ($12) Gorgeous aromatics of spice, lichee and rose oil. Big fruit flavors are more lichee, plus grapefruit, with rose petal and a little orange blossom. The wine is totally, bone dry, but the fruit gives a false impression of sweetness. Consistently one of the two or three best wines of its type in California, and a great companion to a wide range of foods...many of them Asian and many of them spicy. Will hold up to that New Orleans Cajun stuff too. Rating: 96/94
