Merryvale

Golden/amber in color from its long aging in French oak, the wine is a complex combination of nuts and orange-peel aromas. Thick and rich in the mouth, the nuts and orange-peel theme continues from the entry through the long finish, highlighted by the many subtleties from the fine brandy and time in the barrel. 100% Muscat De Frontignan fortified with fine pot-still brandy.

Wine Enthusiast

Oaky, butterscotch scents pour forth from this orange-colored wine. Flavors center around nutty, orangey nuances, with the wood notes reassserting themselves on the finish. The 18% alcohol is barely noticeable in this intense and unique dessert wine that bears a resemblance to some sherries and tawnies.

Score: 91. —Joe Czerwinski, December 31, 1999.

Wine Spectator

A distinctive, amber-colored wine, with Madeira-like nuttiness, a smooth texture and a set of spicy orange aromas and flavors that linger on the finish. Well made and elegant. Drink now. 600 cases made.

Score: 86. November 30, 1991.
