Miraflores Among Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Wines

We are honored and thrilled that one of our wines — our sweet wine, Muscat Canelli NV — has been selected #40 among Wine Enthusiast’s top 100 wines, with a rating of 95 points. Here’s what they had to say about it:

“What a rare, complex, and spectacular wine. Well-aged and fortified wines like this are uncommon in California, but this full bodied and very sweet example proves it’s possible. It has gorgeous aromas of apricot, honey, and toasted nuts followed by expansive, ripe-and-spicy fruit flavors transformed by the aging process. The mouth feel is lavish and full, enabling a wonderful finish that lasts for minutes. Editor’s Choice.”
