2014 Vintage
  • Exceptional / 90 Points - Beverage Testing Institute

    “Bright pale silvery emerald straw color. Lively, floral, fruity aromas and flavors of orange blossoms, peach custard, and nougat with an even, lively, petillant, moderately sweet medium-full body and a tingling, complex, medium-length golden raisin and ripe apricot finish with fruit tannins and no oak. An attractive muscat dessert wine with a nice creaminess.”

    Tasting Panel Magazine

  • Best Buy / 88 Points - Beverage Testing Institute

    “Light straw color. Bright, fruity, floral aromas of honeysuckle, peaches, and potpourri with a supple, tangy, fruity sweet medium body and a warming, amusing, breezy lemon sorbet and apple sauce finish with fruit tannins and no oak. A tasty and easy drinking off-dry sipper.”

  • Silver Medal

    Critics Challenge Wine Competition

2012 Vintage
  • 86 Points - Wine Enthusiast

    “Floral, grapefruity aromas and sweet honey and peach flavors make this a very effusive and fruity wine. Though rich with flavor it's not cloying and is light bodied.”

  • Silver Medal

    San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition

2011 Vintage
  • Exceptional / 90 Points - Beverage Testing Institute

    “Aromas of lemon balm, peach and dusty apple with a round, fruity medium body and and a tangy clementine and earth finish. Nice complexity and off-dry style. Will be great for all occasions.”

  • 86 Points - Wine Enthusiast

    “This straddles the border between an off-dry table wine and a dessert wine. It's crisp in acidity, with candied orange, golden apricot and honey flavors. You could certainly drink it with cookies and fruits, but it's just dry enough to stand up to squash baked with brown sugar, and a piece of grilled chicken.”

  • 85 Points - Wine Spectator

    “The honeycomb, spice, citrus zest and baked apple notes are spicy and round, with a juicy edge on the finish.”

2010 Vintage
  • Best of Class / Gold Medal / 95 Points

    California State Fair Wine Competition

  • Double Gold Medal

    San Francisco International Wine Competition

  • Best Buy / 88 Points - Tasting Panel Magazine

    “Spritzy, bright and aromatic with sweet, spicy peach and orange blossom; juicy, creamy and balanced.”
