Wine Review: This deep amber colored Muscat opens with a nutty bourbon and apricot with hints of sweet bread roll and raisin. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, sweet, viscous and syrupy. The flavor profile is blend of golden raisin, toasted almond and bourbon with hints of honey, apricot and caramel. The finish is pleasantly sweet with well-managed alcohol and it lingers nicely. The Panel would pair this very good dessert wine with a cheese platter featuring some funky blue cheese or with bread pudding. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Angelica is a full-bodied and elegant liqueur-like wine. It's sweeter than most ports, with a light amber to pale-salmon color and a smooth, silky mouthfeel. We arrest the fermentation of the wine at an early stage with the addition of an almost 20-year-old pot-still brandy from Carneros, causing the grapes to retain the maximum of their sugar content, around 15% residual, and an alcohol of about 18%. Store in a cool spot, chill in the refrigerator just before opening and serve as an aperitif or dessert wine. After opening it will keep well in the refrigerator for weeks or months.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell V Sattui Angelica.
