Ironstone Vineyards Obsession "Symphony" 2007 wine review by (PB)


Pale straw hue with bubbles rising in the bottle. "Symphony" is actually the grape created in the 60's in Calif. from the Muscat and Grenache Gris.
It has a wonderfully, powerfully floral and tropical fruit filled bouquet that is sweet and wowing!

In the mouth, this wine is intense with balance and sweetness on a foundation of vibrant acidity loaded with tropical fruit flavors, stone fruit, green apples and is really a super quaffing wine for a hot summer's day. Chill it down and raise a glass of this value.

It costs a mere $9 and that from a store with elevated prices so you could probably find it for even less. In the words of my wife--"It's like a blond summer day."

Obsession is one of our favorite everyday sipping wines. The The Symphony grape has a nice, crisp taste and the wine is light and un-oaked.
