Traminer is one of the most misunderstood grapes and that's because there are three types of it(white, yellow and red), but from DNA tests, they're indistinguishable. We are most familiar with gerwurtztraminer which is the most sweet and aromatic of them.

I was surprised that Rosemount would come up with this interestingly sweet, but not overpowering blend with a light alcoholic percentage. It's very delicate on the tongue, with a nice medium texture which is very silky. The aroma is very floral and the fruit would consist of pineapple, peach, pear and possibly apricot, but in a style that would be reminiscent of a dessert with burned fruit.

While this is not a dessert wine, I would say that this should be served mainly with desserts and maybe lighter seafood fare.

Our Mission: The Black Winer strives to expose African Americans [and others] to wines, without the flair, stuffiness, and airs of elitism and snobbery that you get from sommeliers and high level wine enthusiasts. We believe in finding something that you like the taste of, outside of the basic brands that you have been force-fed over the years through a combination of ethnically targeted advertising, and what people in your family have historically been drinking.
