Essensia California Orange Muscat 2007 review by (PB)

Honey-amber hue with caramelized stone fruit in the nose.

Palate--Peach and apricot with thick structured honey and caramel. Finishes with a light sweet coating of stone fruit on your tongue.

Essensia is one of my perennial favorite dessert wines at a value price of around $12 for a 325ml (half bottle) bottle. I know a lot of people I talk with recoil at the mention of sweet wines but you just cannot confuse a well made dessert wine with cheap, nasty sweet wines made for unwitting consumption.

This one's always a keeper so raise a glass!
