  • Sutter Home Red Blend Zinfandel Merlot Moscato Bianco 2007

    Snoothrank:

  • Seppelt Muscat Rutherglen Show D.P. 63 NV

    Snoothrank:

    Great Muscat, an Aussie treasure... all happening here, prunes, sultanas, hazelnuts, spices... walnuts, pecans... all supported by a syrupy and looooong finish... it reminds me a little of Chai Tea, Hot Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream... Read More
