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.
"Grown Up", Refined Moscato
I identified this as a moscato wearing big girl pants - it's not as overly sweet as a moscato, and instead has a balanced sweetness with a very nice flavor profile, and with a 12% ABV to boot.
Good for a sweet wine
I’m usually not a fan of white wine because they are too dry and acidity, so when I do drink a white wine, I prefer sweet but not too sweet as it tends to lead to a headache. This wine is a good sweet but not so sweet white wine and it’s 12%abv so that helps too!
Not my favorite, but not bad
Not my favorite wine I've had from CH, let alone my favorite varietal in general, but if wasn't for the syrup type of texture, I would have liked this more.
Must have Muscat
I liked this! Not as 'cloying' as the typical Moscati or Riesling. It's a good after work wine, ok with food but probably ideal for desserts, when coffee at night is not an option. Maybe do a 'spritzer' with club soda if it's too sweet?
I think this a very good wine, but this is MUCH sweeter than I like. For whites, I prefer Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, or even a Riesling. If you like a sweet wine, you'll probably enjoy this immensely. I would probably purchase more to serve folks who only drink sweet wine, but I don't drink it myself.
Floral summer patio wine.
I Purchased this wine in anticipation of the kids coming home after college graduation. It is a nice substitute for their usual moscatto. Floral and light. Pairs nicely with fruit and cheese plates. Perfect summer backyard wine.
Excellent, but on the sweeter side.
Aroma is honey, some melon, and light floral notes. Clean flavor, balanced...strong honey notes, some melon. A sweet wine...more sweet than riesling, but not quite dessert. I couldn't drink a lot of this, but I have guests that will go absolutely gaga over this.
Nice sweet wine
I tried this but it is a bit sweet for my palate. Good balance, flavors and acid
Wonderful - not to sweet - great with fruit
Nice well balanced with a slight hint of Lemmon. Goes well with Light table fair and with shell fish like crab cakes and crabs.
Sweet, light & crisp
Very nice dessert style wine, wonderful nose, sweet but finishes with dryer, lemony citrus notes.
