    Yuk. Label promises intense tropical fruit with notes of Rose & Jasmine. Nope, not to me. What I taste is very pungent. Dry, slight bubbles, almost amber color. That's about it, cracker please. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I found this bottle of wine in a local shop. I like sweet wines and was a little skeptical at first when the bottle said sweet white wine for a Moscato, as i have tried a few that said they were sweet but did not please my palate. I loved this wine from the first sip. I will continue to purchase it as long as the store carries it. Read More
