Vintage 2015
Wine Type White
Varietal Muscat Canelli
Region Carneros
Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor
This is a very versatile wine. Lightly sweet and mouth-watering on a summer day, Muscat Canelli pairs well with fresh goat cheese and crackers, toasted almonds, mellow pâtés, spicy foods such as pork loin in adobo and Mexican fare. It’s also enjoyable beside a fresh fruit salad laced with honey, and with butter cookies and creamy custards. You can also enjoy this wine with hot and spicy Asian flavors or roast chicken with a honey-lavender marinade.

Tasting Notes

With its Egyptian heritage, the Muscat grape gives this wine a beautiful tropical fruit bottom. Notes of ripe pineapple, lychee nut, honeysuckle and passionfruit are explosive on the tongue and in the nose. The sugar content is left to complement and emphasize the flavor profile without being overly sweet. Although primarily grown in the Los Carneros American Viticultural Area (AVA) of the Napa Valley where cool temperatures account for the balanced acidity of the wine, this grape is versatile enough to grow in many different regions. Our Muscat Canelli is cold fermented at around 48 degrees Fahrenheit to preserve the fruit flavor.
