Winemaker 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

Stein Family
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.

California

View all wine

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
