Quady Black Muscat "Elysium" California 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Andrew Quady's change of career from making fireworks to making wine produced an explosion of its own kind when he created Essensia from the Orange Muscat grape (named because the grapes have an aroma reminiscent of orange blossom). It was an instant success at tastings and wine shows and until 1985 he could not make enough to satisfy demand. Following the success of Essensia, Andy's next creation was Elysium from the Black Muscat grape, which is magenta in colour, with a haunting flower-like aroma. Quady is the foremost USA winery specialising entirely in dessert wines and continues to win medals worldwide. Vintage: 2009 Grapes: Black Muscat Taste: A wonderful dessert wine with a rich berry flavour and a crystalline aroma of petals Serve: Chilled in small glasses and is especially excellent when matched with desserts, chocolate and vanilla ABV: 15% R/S: 160 gr/ltr

I was told that "Elysium" is Greek for paradise. Funny, because the first thing I thought of when I tried this wine was, "Heaven." So delicious.
