Airfield Estates 2015 Moscato, Yakima Valley, $15

By on August 23, 2017

Best Buy! This year, Marcus Miller continues to toast the 50th anniversary of his grandfather, Don, establishing Airfield Estates near the base of the Rattlesnake Mountain. The delightful and light expression with Muscat Canelli, one of the seven white varieties planted across their 830 acres, is nicely done without any fizz. Classic aromas of jasmine and rosewater include peaches and apricots. There’s follow through to the palate as pleasing acidity and a nibble of peach skin balance the 4% residual sugar. Suggested pairings include Massaman Chicken, roasted duck breast, Stone-Fruit Panzanella, savory cheesecake and slightly aged goat’s cheese or Cougar Gold.
