2014 Palmaz ‘Florencia’ Muscat Canelli
Tasting Notes The 2014 Florencia Muscat is a departure from previous vintages, expressing a refreshing quality that belies its Napa origins and mimics a more Alsatian style. Oddly, its residual sugar is similar to that of previous vintages, but its sweetness is tamped by its crisp acid expression. The result is an enticing mélange of lilies, ripe apricots and musk undertones. While we typically serve the Muscat with fruit tarts and similar desserts, this vintage can be paired equally well with butter-poached lobster and seafood platters. From beginning to end, this wine is an exceptional example of the versatility of off-dry Muscat wines.
