"This is a truly unique and amazing desert wine from California! The grape used is called Muscat de Frontignan, and the wine is fortified with fine pot-still brandy, aged in French oak barrels and tanks. Like other fortified dessert wines, this is a multi-year blend, using vintages from 1970-1983 and 1992-1997. The wine is 18% alcohol, and has 11% residual sugar. It is golden/amber in color from its long aging in French oak, and the wine is a complex combination of nuts and orange-peel aromas. Thick and rich in the mouth, the nuts and orange-peel theme continues from the entry through the long finish, highlighted by the many subtleties from the fine brandy and time in the barrel. It's a great paring with Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, Almond Biscotti, Hazelnut Torte, and Pecan Pie!"
