Ruby garnet color. Aromas of grenadine, grappa, honey, orange flower blossom, and citronella with an vibrant, very sweet light-to-medium body and a silky, intriguing, medium-long strawberry licorice, dried honey, and hints of fennel finish with no oak flavor. A distinctive and bold Muscat for the after-dinner pour.

The Muscat grape is of ancient origins dating to Greek and Roman times. There are many types widely planted around the Mediterranean basin and the New World. It is intensely aromatic, with a distinctive floral quality and can be ripened to the point of being quite heavy. As such, it is most often seen in a range of dessert styles from the crisp, refreshing Moscato d'Asti of Piedmont to fortified French, Spanish, or Australian elixirs.
