    Item no. 98679

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 56% Malvasia Bianca, 22% Muscat Canelli, 18% Viognierand 4% Rousanne.

    Big House wines are a rebellious mix of nontraditional grape varieties destined to give the imbiber a new experience. This year's tipple is reminiscent of the Franco-Italian battle for the '06 FIFA World Cup. The flamboyant Italians represented by Malvasia and Muscat Canelli and the much more austere and serious French led by Viognier and Rousanne.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Continues the solid trend of this label producing some of the best values in California. Dry, crisp and delicious, with mineralinfused flavors of oranges, honeysuckle and buttered toast. A blend of Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier and Roussanne.

    what is more fun than trying to figure out a wine? Semellion? chardonnay? sauncerre? whether one can spell or not ( I'll go with not), one can still be intelligent, and you will love this wine. For the price it is more fun than an Acacia or Stag's Leap.

    A great value this wine. For less than $10 you get a wine that is sturdy enough to stand-up to food, yet delicate enough to sip alone.

    Some people may really like this wine (especially, for the price), but the floral notes were so strong it almost felt as if I was drinking perfume! That makes it almost impossible to drink with most foods, so perhaps, have it afterwards, as a dessert wine.
