  • Mirassou Moscato 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Juicy melon, tangerine and sweet tea aromas on the nose are quite inviting. In the mouth this is light, fresh tasting and fairly mild, and carries notes of orange and sweet tea, with some light effervescence and a hint of grapefruit. Bordering on off-dry, this definitely will please those with a sweet tooth. Read More

  • Willow Crest Muscat Canelli Yakima Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Showing floral and fruit on the nose with juicy bright peach, candied apple and honey aromas. This is still brightly acidic, though expect newer vintages to have more buoyancy. Still this is effervescent and off-dry today, with notes of fresh red apple, peach and dried apricot, and a touch of phenolics towards the finish. Read More
