Lot 648 comes to us from a family-owned winery in Lake County that specializes in small-lot, top-quality wines made from certified organic vineyards (and boasts a massive laundry list of 90+ scores and double gold medals from the past decade to boot). Made from old vines planted in the late 70s and raised in stainless steel.
Varietal note: also known as Muscat Blanc, Muscat Canelli is one of the oldest cultivated grape varieties in the world, with origins dating back to the ancient Greeks. In modern times, the Muscat Blanc varietal has found its sweet spot in California's better growing regions, with the hallmark characteristic being floral, wonderfully perfumed wines with wonderfully nervy stone fruit notes that range from off-dry to sweet/dessert styles.
This is a truly lovely wine. The Cam description above of this wine is spot on for nose and flavors, but maybe not an "explosion" but for me more a gentle burst. And the "kiss" is a very sexy French one. Do not save this for warm weather but enjoy anytime.
Very nice semi sweet wine
Semi sweet very nice wine. Had it with turkey and it went well. If you like a semi sweet wine with some body, this wine is for you. It will make a great summer wine. Outstanding value
Just tasted this
Really like this wine. Enjoyed without food while watching our favorite TV show. Was surprised to not taste that cloyingly sweet taste, This is a light, full of flavor little wine. I will definitely order more.
Great Summer Wine
Had a nice evening sitting on the patio with my partner drinking this.
Dry and sweet. The fruity aroma that bursts out of the bottle is intense. Really good citrus notes. Perfect fire table sipper.
We really wanted to like this, but is was just too dry to enjoy. We use it for a cooking wine.
Flowery nose with right touch of sweetness and fruit. As good as more expensive Napa wineries Muscat Canelli
Must have Muscat Canelli
There is such a great fruit taste with this wine, I almost thought I fulfilled my Food Pyramid fruit quota for the day! It's sweet but not like candy or syrup like some wines. It's a nice cool wind-down to a tense day, but it was not warm in May so I'll have to get more when the temps go up! I'll have it with fruit, cheese, or something salty to contrast.
Sweet n Tasty
This wine is a great aperitif. Sweet, fruit forward, without hot alcohol taste. no off notes. Enjoy!
