Gewürztraminer - (Geh-VERTZ-trah-mee-nur)

White wine grape best-known in Alsace, Germany, the U.S. West Coast and New York; the tongue-twisting name has been jokingly suggested as a good one to use in field sobriety testing. Highly aromatic, makes wines (often off-dry to sweet, though less so in Alsace) with much concentration, although the alleged "spice" (literal translation of the German "Gewurz") may be hard to find.
