This is surprisingly aromatic with a base of apricot fruit topped with very floral notes that recall viognier and a bright lemon drop tone that is complimented by bay leaf, herb, and powdered sugar notes. Medium full in the mouth with enough acidity to balance the touch of sweetness here. A bit simple in the mouth, it's pretty front loaded but does return some nice floral character on the moderately long finish. 84pts.

Just ok. Very chard up front and a bit dry. It got better as your palate adjusted to the wine. Nothing really worth mentioning. For another 2-3 dollars I'd go with Apothic white.

Lots of floral and citrus notes on the nose, with a similar palate, leading into a slightly vegetal finish of cucumber. Fairly complex with an interesting blend of grapes (malvasia bianca, muscat canelli, viognier, and roussanne). There's a bit of oak that gives a bit of a buttered toast/smokey component, but it's well balanced and hides any sweetness from the muscat, leading to a good, crisp, full wine with a lengthy finish.

This was okay, its got a sweet nose reminiscent of lillies and other sweet flowers, the body is soft and the sweetness is light.

Serviceable. In my opinion too many varietals making it too complex and not focused. On the nose I picked up lemon and some stone/minerals. Some acid on the palate with lemon and mineral and hints of tropical fruit. Probably high in Chenin Blanc. Also: Sauv Blanc, viognier, malvasia bianca, orange muscat muscat canelli, and marsanne.

Palatable. Given the list of 7 different varietals that make up this wine it would appear that it was comprised of the leftovers they didn't know what to do with.

This wine was fun - like it appears to be in the labeling. It was light and fruity. Entirely drinkable, and seemed best served chilled.

I had this with some whitefish and it was nice. Nothing exceptional but a good average white wine that is happily in my price range.

This fragrant white shows pretty orange blossom, honeysuckle and fresh citrus zest notes that give way to orange sherbet, yellow raisin and Key lime flavors. Creamy and refreshing, this lingers in the finish. Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Grigio. Drink now.

Wonderfully perfumed and fragrant, like a walk through a flower garden. Honeysuckle, melon, green apple, peach and citrus notes are punctuated by the smooth body and vibrant acidity. Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Roussanne. Drink now.

Big House White is a terrific, well-priced food wine made from Malvasia Bianca, Orange Muscat, Riesling, Grenache Blanc, and more! With a fresh, floral nose and lively lemon on the nose and palate, it's crisp, dry, and full of flavor.

Continues the solid trend of this label producing some of the best values in California. Dry, crisp and delicious, with mineral-infused flavors of oranges, honeysuckle and buttered toast. A blend of Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Roussanne.
