Forgeron Cellars Orange Muscat Columbia Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The release of our second vintage of Orange Muscat is a wonderful way to celebrate the new decade. Crafted in the style of a French Aperitif, it has been lightly fortified with brandy, making it a delightful prelude to a wonderful meal.

Founded in 2001, the winery became a reality when the investors recruited a French born and educated winemaker, Marie-Eve Gilla. Marie-Eve has extensive experience as a winemaker, in the Burgundy region of France, Oregon, and Washington. Under Marie-Eve's direction, Forgeron Cellars focuses on producing true varietal wines. Marie-Eve says, "My wines have a sense of place, they reflect their terroir which is composite of the vine location and the grower dedication. I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character." Read less

Tasting Notes:

The nose is fresh and clean with delicate orange blossom, white peaches and Mandarin oranges. In the mouth, integrated flavors of cinnamon, ginger and brown sugar lead the way to lemon peel and vanilla on the mid-palate with a luscious crème brulée finish. From start to finish, this is a beautiful wine delighting the senses.
