Quady Winery Black Muscat California Elysium 2005
Garnet-cherry colour with medium intensity. Red tree fruit, specially ripe cherry and plum on the nose. A well balanced dessert wine with sufficient acidity to balance the sugar. Luscious red fruit on the palate and a lingering finish.Add winemaker's notes
Garnet-cherry colour with medium intensity. Red tree fruit, specially ripe cherry and plum on the nose. A well balanced dessert wine with sufficient acidity to balance the sugar. Luscious red fruit on the palate and a lingering finish.
Lovely dessert wine: rose and lychee on the nose and palate. Lingering, sweet finish. Pairs well with dessert cheeses but I prefer sipping Black Muscat alone or pairing with a fine dark chocolate.
External Reviews for Quady Winery Black Muscat California Elysium
Dark red in color and crisp in citrusy acidity, this dessert wine has very sweet flavors of black cherry marmalade, Dr. Pepper cola, milk chocolate, tangerine and savory spices. You can drink it at room temperature or with a chill.
Disarmingly ripe and fruity, this sweet wine shows plenty of plum with hints of cinnamon and vanilla, and a touch of mint on the open-textured finish. Ready now.
Sweet and spicy, with modest cherry and strawberry flavors accented by a twist of lime. Some may find this quite appealing, while others may dismiss it as simple Drink now.
Firm in texture and ebulliently fruity, with terrific blackberry, Muscat and nutmeg aromas and flavors. The alcohol doesnrsquo;t get in the way. Like a Muscat Port. Drinkable now.
ldquo;Elysiumrdquo; in Greek mythology is the afterlife of perfect bliss, and itrsquo;s not hard to imagine this as the house pour. It is sweet mdash; but not shockingly so mdash; with blackberry, orange, vanilla and chocolate flavors, and a richly smooth mouthfeel. If yoursquo;re treating yourself to something chocolaty, especially if it has oranges or strawberries, this will be a seductive companion.
A beautiful dessert wine that should influence consumers to rediscover the category. Almost as dark as a red wine, itrsquo;s soft in texture and extraordinarily sweet, with intense essence of tangerine and raspberry flavors. Hard to exaggerate the deliciousness factor. Good value in a full 750-milliliter bottle.
