  • Pfaffenheim Muscat Alsace Aoc 2003

    Snoothrank:

    An unbelievably powerful nose of grape jelly. It's such rich and aromatic on the nose that you're surprised when the wine is dry. Very nice - a dry, crisp wine with surprisingly robust acidity. Raisins and peppermint on the finish Read More

    The nose here was intense with freshly grated lime zest over cut grass. This ... a very nice, powerful dry Muscat. 88p Read More

  • Crnko Rumeni Muskat 2007

    Snoothrank:

    I absolutely loved this. I can see why it won gold in the 2007 San Francisco International wine competition. This was a BIG hit at a recent wine tasting BBQ at my house. Very fruity with a perfect sugar / bitter combination. Excellent for a summer wine. Read More

  • Il Conte d'Alba White Blend Stella Rosa 1917

    Snoothrank:

    Found this wine while on vacation in L.A. Calif. brought some back and had more shipped later. Love it, and has been well received by all I have shared it with. Will be getting more soon! To bad it is unavailable here in Ga. would be less per bottle. Still worth it to me. Good with dinner or all by its self. Read More

    Natural bubbles, though not as many as a sparkling or champagne. Perfect white grape desert wine. Light and sweet, no sulfites, clean finish. Read More

    Wine review by Bobechi
