This wine features an extremely aromatic nose of apricot, orange, lychee, ginger and white floral notes. It's not nearly as expressive on the palate, though the fruit and ginger notes are very present. It has medium body and acidity with reasonable length, though there is a slightly disagreeable bitter note to the finish. Overall, it's an extremely pleasant wine and paired nicely with a ginger-laden stirfry. Plus, it's a very reasonable price for a wine from a California producer who is thinking outside of the box of what that state can produce. Tasted March 2013.
This was my first go at a dry Moscato (Muscat). On the nose it's quite fragrant with meyer lemon, white flowers, peach, and lychee. The aromas are replayed on the palate, but it dies on the finish and there's an off-putting bitter note as well. The bitter note was less noticeable with food, but both before and after dinner it was ever present. Overall, nice to try a different grape/style, but for $20, it's a pass.
