Andy Quady, blessed with a wicked sense of humor, founded his winery in Madera, in the central San Joaquin Valley, to make classic dessert wines. Included in his portfolio are splendid Muscat-based wines and port-style wines. But because it’s not legal to call the latter by the name of the similar wine from Portugal [Port], Quady renamed his Starboard. His Muscat wines include a delightful Orange Muscat called Essensia, a black Muscat called Elysium, and a low-alcohol Orange Muscat, called Electra. For this new wine, Quady said he thought it would be fun to make a “love potion” dessert wine, “so we infused Damiana and Scented Geranium into our Essensia Orange Muscat dessert wine.” He said damiana is a plant with a pleasant herbal character “reputed to have aphrodisiac properties,” though the wine isn’t advertised as an actual love potion. Quady added that scented geranium “is said to be used in witchcraft where practitioners supposedly employ its hauntingly seductive aroma in love potions.” It is impossible to describe this truly exotic dessert wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deviation wine, incorporating new ingredients from the plant kingdom, delivers higher levels of sensory pleasure than can be done with grapes alone. Its name refers not only to a deviation from winemaking practice but also to the history of specialty winemaking at Quady and as homage to change. Mysteriously attractive aromatics, sweet but with a surprisingly dry finish, and ethno botanical significance (of its non grape botanicals) make Deviation a wine for romance. Living up to its name, it is different in composition, in sensory impact, and in its power to induce emotion and feeling from other wines.
