N/V Beaulieu Vineyard BV Muscat de Beaulieu

This was something like $8 for a half bottle – being a dessert wine that's quite a deal so I snagged one.

Ripe peaches on the nose.

Very ripe peach – peach pie filling – overwhelms the palate. This is 18% alcohol but there's not a whole lot of burn – though there is a heavy thickness.

Just more peach on the finish.

After a few days of being open, the nose has faded a bit and the palate his picked up some strange nutty flavors – walnut mainly, I suppose – with honey, peach, apricot, and vanilla.

No depth, but for a cheap dessert wine I don't expect much – no big flaws other than its simplicity. If you like a peachy wine with enough alcohol to knock you on your ass, here you go.
