  • 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

    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

    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
