Our tasting a Party Town this day featured 4 selections from Hayes Valley Wines from San Martin, California:

  • 2015 Chardonnay
  • 2015 Merlot
  • 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 2015 Zinfandel

The fifth wine of the day was a dessert selection:

  • Quady’s Essensia Orange Muscat

Aged in stainless steel tanks, the Chardonnay was missing the oak and butter I prefer. However, a tasting heavy on the reds was nice bonus.

I didn’t realize until after a bit of research that the Orange Muscat was a grape varietal.  At the time of the tasting I was expecting an essense of orange flavor which had seemed to be lacking
