Clean appearance. Aromas of ripe fruit and florals. Deliciously light, but full of flavor and not overly sweet.
Nice wine that brings thoughts of Indian summer, and mouthfuls of white fruits without the cloying sweetness you sometimes get with this varietal. From an under-appreciated Napa winery.
reminiscent of peaches and warm sunlight on your skin in summer, sweet but not too, good depth... quite nice as a dessert wine or aperatif
This is my wife's absolute favorite from a winery whose Club is gererous and inviting.
Always a sure-fire, reliable Sauvignon !
External Reviews for St. Supéry Vineyards Moscato North Coast
Like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach, apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.
Wine Tasting NotesPerfumed aromas of orchard ripe peaches and stewed apricots. Flavors follow with peaches and apricot, accompanied by notes of cantaloupe and lychees, with ripe density and balanced acidity. Our 'tropical fruit basket' in a glass!
The 2006 Muscato is like a breath of summer in a glass. There is a wonderful aroma of white peach, apricot pear and slight floral finish. The wine is light and delicate yet full of intense flavors of sweet ripe pear and apricots. This is a perfect aperitif for an afternoon gathering.
A deliciously floral, yet delicate Muscat wine, this St. Supery Moscato had the intense perfumed aromas of ripe peaches and apricots enhanced by cantalope and lychees for a crisp and balanced wine. Serve chilled as an aperitif or with dessert.
St. Supéry’s winemaker Michael Beaulac tells me he doesn’t have to do much to sell this wine, because according to him, it flies out the door of the Rutherford winery. Which to me is an amazing thing because Americans don’t much cotton to dessert wines; nor do they know very much about Moscato.But the truth is, once you get a whiff of this wine’s lovely pear-apricot aromas, and then get a chance to taste it…well, it’s no wonder it has become one of St. Supery’s most popular wines (second only to its Sauvignon Blanc, one of the best selling wines of its kind in America). I had this Moscato, which is made from 100 percent Muscat Canelli, with a strawberry, rhubarb, mango feuilleté (a puff pastry) and let me tell you – the wine played the perfect foil. The tart/sweetness of the dessert’s fruit played off, but was not overwhelmed by, the pear-apricot popsicle of the wine. That’s because the Moscato has only (I’m guessing) about 2-to-3 percent residual sugar, so it is not cloying, and its back end is perfectly balanced with a goodly amount of acidity. Lastly, the alcohol is relatively low – 11.5 percent – making it a perfect summer sipper.The Moscato grapes in this wine come from varied North Coast sources: 67% Mendocino County, 20% Lake County, 13% Napa Valley – hence the label carries the broad “California” appellation designation.
