Muscat Blanc on Snooth

  • Yeah, it's back! Thanks Mark A. for the fix, sorry I broke Snooth.DM, next after the rieslings it was pretty much a tie between the spicy, aromatic gewurtraminers and the dry but fruit forward pinot gris'. The sylvaner and pinot blanc were very good as well, just not nearly as complex. On the other hand we also had some really good muscat, every... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon glaze shortbread cookie nose gives way to a slightly fizzy, honeysuckle and sugared lemon and tangerine palate with some crisp straw notes. Fresh and light for easy drinking and a perfect mealtime friend. Read More

  • Candoni Moscato

    Snoothrank:

    Effervescent mouthfeel is extremely fruity with notes of peach and apricot, honey and oranges. In the mouth this is delicate and honeyed with lots of ripe red apples, pear and floral notes of orange blossom and a slight touch of tart lemon on the finish. Read More

  • Luccio Moscato d'Asti 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Still one of my favorites but the sweetness level remains at elevated level, which is not something I really like to drink on a steady basis. Apples are dominate, with orchard florals, honey and bubbles. Went great with turkey, stuffing mushrooms, stuffed mushrooms, several cheeses, green bean casserole, baked squash w/nuts and cranberry relish.... Read More
