Wine Details

Showcases an absolutely gorgeous nose of orange blossom, honey, cantaloupe, and mandarin orange. A lush, round entry on the palate explodes with stone fruit and citrus energy, leading to a zesty yet umami-driven finish of mandarin orange, nectarine, peach, and just a kiss of honeyed sweetness. Serve chilled about 15 minutes out of the fridge for a marvelous warm weather treat.

Cam Confidential

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

I tried this but it is a bit sweet for my palate. Good balance, flavors and acid

Nice well balanced with a slight hint of Lemmon. Goes well with Light table fair and with shell fish like crab cakes and crabs.

Very nice dessert style wine, wonderful nose, sweet but finishes with dryer, lemony citrus notes.
