94 Points, Martin Sheehan-Stross Lead Sommelier Michael Mina, SF. This wine represents a great mix of fruit, floral aromatics, and exotic spice. On the nose there are lovely aromatics of jasmine and violets. Yellow peaches, papaya, and candied mandarin all waft from the glass. The palate is medium bodied, with zippy acidity to keep things fresh. This is a moscato that is meant to be enjoyed with dessert, perhaps a peach cobbler brought along on your next Spring picnic.
94 Points,“Sommelier to the Stars” Christopher Sawyer. Sweetness is a state of mind. That’s especially true of white wines made with the famous muscat/moscato grapes, which are directly linked back to refreshing sips enjoyed by locals living along the coastlines of southern Italy, Sicily and Greece in ancient times: Later made famous with Egyptian ties when the legendary Muscat of Alexandria was presented in Paris in 1713. Today, these noble grapes with golden hues are grown in the special wine regions of California that have climates similar to those along the Mediterranean. While it is true that many offerings are sweet, syrupy and cloying; the best are much more focused on dazzling the palate with fresh fruit flavors, tangy acidity, and a soft, suede-like texture that gets better with more time in the bottle. The Trinitas 2010 Moscato is a marvelous example of this style. Once poured, this lovely wine quickly opens up with fragrant aromas of magnolia blossom, fresh peach, stone fruits and kaffir lime. On palate, the flavors explode with delicious notes of ripe pear, white peach, papaya, a fresh slice of key lime pie, and a long tangy finish. For pairings, this wine is a true food lover’s delight. In addition to being a fantastic aperitif to start the evening off in style, the complex flavors and bright acidity of the wine works wonders with soft cheeses, spring rolls, fresh sushi, grilled fish with fresh fruit chutney, chicken with citrus aioli, the more delicate styles of Asian and Eastern Indian cuisine, and fruit pies and parfaits at the end of the meal. All this from one wine. Get yours before its gone.
