Marvelous Muscats: Two Locally Crafted Treats


If you’re a sweet-toothed wine aficionado, you’ll relish two Amador County-crafted after-dinner wines, both produced from the same grape variety. Sobon Estate features the flowery, perfumey Orange Muscat in its “Rezerve” sweet wine, which floods the palate with rich, scrumptious flavors of orange blossom, ripe pineapple and vanilla. Shenandoah Vineyards features the Black Muscat grape in its dessert wine, offering gorgeous tropical, rose petal aromas and layered, complexly fruity flavors of raspberry, strawberry and dried fig with a spicy, peppery edge. While these lovely, sophisticated wines can be paired with cheese or a dessert course, they’re also fabulous just by themselves—making your next dinner party even easier to plan.
