I've always served a slightly sweet Gewurtz with spicy sausage -- so I'd say the Trimbach is out. Most of the Cali Gewurtzs are sweeter than the French -- something around a Spatelese level is perfect I find. I also commonly drink a nice ripe Zin with BBQ, which is quite similar. ~ H Have some Turley ready for drinking. Maybe I'll pop one of those. I will have pics of the process starting Friday, when I cube and season.
