I am not an expert, but I know what I like. I always have my eye out for Moscato D'Asti, as it is my favorite. I like sweet wines. I found this at a very good price ($7.49 on Sale, regularly $14.99) at Walgreen's in Wake Forest, NC. On opening it, I thought I might not like it, as the fragrance wafting up as I opened it was not appetizing. The first glass smelled rather strange, but as it sat, it lost the strong scent. I am glad I stuck with it. It is pretty special- lovely tart that plays against the sweet grape, apple, pear, apricots, and a faint floral something. It is what I think is a medium body, which i like. It is very smooth, easy to drink and mellows a tad as it goes from chilled to just cool. I think it gets richer and more complex in flavors as it starts to warm up from just chilled to just cool. Not as bubbly as some others, but it does not distract from this wine in the least. I had some of this wine with a dinner of chicken in a very light terriaki/honey glaze; green beans tossed in a good olive oil, a drop or two of sesame oil and a light sprinkle of lemon-pepper, and a nice chewy rustic white loaf of bread with butter/olive oil/garlic/feta sprinkled on cut bread and warmed- I think it was a good pairing. I tried some with Goat cheese with cranberry and cinnamon- fantastic! This Moscato is complex enough and lingers long enough to hold it's own and play against the flavors of foods. Mine had 2012 production date.

Rose from Tavel is one of the few rose wines that can improve in the bottle, but this one is completely ready to please right away.Limestone and minerals mix with fresh berries on the nose.Nice density on the palate with balanced spicy white pepper, strawberry and cherry notes.Juicy and tense.

Good colour with hints of gold. The nose develops a bouquet of crystallised citrus with almond notes. The taste is full and generous, bringing together finesse and elegance, with a fine finish. Can be enjoyed as an aperitif wine, with a Berry regional potato galette, with fish cooked in sauce, and white meat; it pairs perfectly with Asian dishes, sweet and sour... and whatever else inspires you. - Winery

A pure fruit expression of our vineyard, Talbott Chardonnay, Kali Hart is lush and lively. Minimal winemaker influence allows Kali Hart Chardonnay to showcases the strength of Talbott's estate vineyards. The rich, inviting nose shows bright tropical notes that continue on the palate, where refreshing flavors of pineapple and honeydew are complimented by refreshing acidity. A generous mid-palate leads to a long citrus and tropical fruit finish with hints of French oak and minerality

Grape variety: 100% Shiraz Vinification: To make the Fat bastard Shiraz we source wines in the Minervois area near Carcassonne, in the Pezenas sector, and in the north of Nimes. These vineyards present excellent conditions for the Shiraz vines. The stony soil and a perfect microclimate yields mature grapes with a high concentration of color and aromas. Tasting Notes: Rich and dense with complex aromas of blackberries, licorice and vanilla. Tannins are ripe and delicate. Food Pairings: A perfect match with red meat, lamb, spicy foods and full-bodied cheeses. - Winery
