2009 mandolina Santa Barbara County Muscat Canelli

10.1% alc.. Italian muscat grape that is used in stilland sparkling wines. Sourced from the winery’s Los Alamos Vineyard. · The nose starts off with spices, cucumber, sawdust and hay, developing interest over time with more fruit including peaches and stewed apples, as well as floral lilac. Dry and tasty with juicy flavors of guava, linalool and passion fruit that linger on the finish. Would be great with prosciuttowrapped melon. A big plus is that you can enjoy a few glasses of this without getting sideways. Very good. Reviewed April 23, 2010
