Winemaker's Notes:

Wines made in lighter styles require winemaking finesse and restraint, and as our goal is always a wine which will work with rather than against food, that meant taking this one in a slightly different direction than others' Moscatos. Naturally lighter through lower alcohol, a certain complexity of flavors is also needed to work well with food. The Cab Franc adds a plushness to the wine while also bringing out a lovely watermelon note perfect for summertime, evening appetizers year-round, and effortless end-of-meal conclusions. Chilling adds to the crispness, letting the consumer decide her preferred way to pair. We called it "magic hour" both in honor of our son's painting on the label as well as for that special time of the late afternoon which is perfect for memories.

Blend: 86% Moscato, 14% Cabernet Franc

My Notes:

About Stein Family Wines:

Stein Family Wines makes great wines: all of their brands have won plenty of awards, received great scores, and been given good mention in the media, but that is not what makes Stein Family Wines different from all of your other wine options. Stein Family Wines donates five percent of every sale they make, and those donations go directly to the children of vineyard workers in the form of college scholarships and support funding. Yes, others give a percentage of their profits, but Stein Family Wines guarantees the kids see the money whether the winery is profitable or not.
