Moscato fior d' Arancio

Andrew Quady, "Essensia" California Orange Muscat 2001 ($14 for 375ml) -- This is a "sweet" dessert wine from a well-known producer of California dessert wines (and a high-end dry vermouth I have tried to find and taste with my occasional Bombay Sapphire martini). I would not say it is overly sweet, but it is (let me think) orange. There is an aromatic nose of orange (duh!) that may be overpowering for some, but works well with chocolate and tangerines (tonight's late night snack thanks to cousin David in Las Vegas -- David this is your official thank you for the gift. You're not getting a card!). The finish is not very long but pleasant and this is great for a few splashes. Again, this is excellent as an accompaniment to the right dessert in small quantities. Now bring on the Bombay!
