3 Espumante Garibaldi Moscatel Rose
Comments: Creamy red cherry, strawberry fruit, on the nose is backed up with a bit of black mission fig. In the mouth this is a bit sweeter and heavier, than the Moscato with deep fruit, lots of mission fig up front, followed by a creamy, bright midpalate and a nice little hook of black cherry skin on the backend. Plenty sweet but what this market is looking for. 84pts

4 Garibaldi Chalet du Clement Chardonnay (2011)
Comments: A bit of a confected nose here, sweet with vanilla, gingerbread, spicy incense, apple fruit. 1.25 grams rs comes off as sweet on entry, then round, and fruity in the mouth with nice acid driven clarity. Definitely fruity but shows some nice Chardonnay character on the backend and nice acid on the finish. 83pts
