LOL.. I'm afraid to go back and read pages 2 & 3 of this thread.. I'm hearing hard to find, sweet as hell and Shane is a wine boss... LOL

I still have to find my bottle. Every time I'm at the grocery store I scan quickly for a bottle and never find one - I'm not looking too hard as I'm trying to keep up with Erik (better half) as he walks past the wine thinking (we don't need to be here). I'm going to head to BevMo tomorrow probably and pick up a bottle before the month is over. I have a ton of stuff to do this week including getting ready for a stage presentation in front of 500 tech media and investors... I will be passing out 1000 cupcakes to the 1500 attendees at the event so I'm hoping to seduce them with food! I was lucky to get CRUMBs bakeshop to donate all the cupcakes.. isn't that sweet? Smile I'll be posting photos during the event and after in a newsletter to let you all know how it went. (BTW - no one has sent me a video so I can add it to our presentation... hello!) Smile LOL

OK.. back to wine - I supposed next month someone will pick a more savory blend... LOL

LOL, Babs!! It is sweet, but it's also one I hadn't tried before, so not a "bad" choice at all!!! It's all about the variety Wink Though I am looking forward to a non-dessert wine...whoever is in charge of picking next month (hint, hint).

Best of luck on your presentation...knock their socks off Very Happy

Heather, I had tried that Sutter Home before and actually, I liked it....but I tasted more like pears than floral shop (LOL) That was a few years ago. So then just recently, I had bought another bottle (I think when we did moscato month) Anywho, it totally sucked...it was way tooo sweet for me too and nothing like I remembered! So maybe, it was a bad year? LOL

Oh, and don't ever feel bad about giving a bad review...I do it all the time HA! Just tell it how it is girl! HA!

HEE HEE... Yeah, I picked Muscat in February - (Muscat Love) But it was generic from Muscat, Muscatelle, Muscato, Muscadet, Orange Muscat, Black Muscat, Muscato d'Asti, Muscat Canelli..... Anything that anyone could find...
Smile

I found an interesting late harvest wine while looking for the Electra Orange Muscat this weekend... It's called "Sweet Caroline" made from "Grey" Riesling which is really an mutated form of Pinot Grigio (Why they call it Grey Riesling I will never know)

OOO and I also found a Vin Santo..... that I could actually afford... Laughing I have problems spending 37 dollars on a little 375ml bottle of wine... but 9.99 I will do... Very Happy It was on sale... YAY! NOW I just have to come up with an UBER Italian dessert to serve it with... Wink

OK, I have been slackin... Joe and I drank these on the weekend of the 4th....

Name: Electra Orange Muscat – By Quandry
Origin: California Central Coast
Price: $10.00
Year: 2007



Short intro from the wine maker about the wine:
With the first sip you feel the wine- light as springtime, delicately sweet, refreshingly crisp, a bouquet of flowers with the taste of peach and melon. Electra is electricity for the mouth!
Review:
Light, Crisp & Sweet… There really isn’t much more I can say… Smells like Oranges & Musk…
Would you buy again?:
I do, for cooking… Not really a favorite for drinking… Too sweet for me
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes:
Strawberries, Nectarines, Peaches, Melons, Salads, Spicy Asian and Indian foods, Rhubarb, Used for Stewing pears… Orange Muscat Cream sauce for Blue cheese stuffed Pork Loins…
