Wine Review: This wine opens with a very light bosc pear bouquet with a hint of honeydew melon. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, creamy and soft with slightly tart lime flavors. There are notes of green apple and a hint of vanilla on the back palate. The finish is dry and has nice length for this varietal. We would pair this wine with ham covered with roasted pineapples. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2006 Taylor’s Vineyard Musqué represents a unique side of the increasingly popular and versatile Sauvignon Blanc varietal. Used by most wineries as a blending grape, we isolated the Musqué selection of Sauvignon Blanc and allowed it to shine through. Using only stainless steel fermentation, this aromatic wine presents aromas of honeysuckle, melon, pineapple, and nutmeg. On the palate, tropical fruit flavors are rich and succulent with undertones of exotic spice and seamless acidity. The finish combines the entire experience together leading to a long and satisfying finish.
