Sometimes nothing hits the spot at then end of the evening like a small glass of sweet wine. Quady Red Electra with only 5% alcohol can be the perfect nightcap.

2010 Martin & Weyrich Moscato Allegro Muscat Canelli, CA, $12 (S) – Rating 88

Looking for a sweetie for that patio party or to pair with spicy foods…this Moscato may be your answer. A rich nose of ripe peach precedes a slightly effervescent mouth-feel offering flavors of peach, honeycomb and vanilla. Low alcohol at 7.5%, it may also be just enough sweetness to finish off your night. Buy This Wine

2010 Quady Electra Moscato, California Orange Muscat Wine, $12 (S) – Rating 90

Think sweet…not too sweet…Think low alcohol (4%). A wonderful Muscat from Quady offering up flavors of melon, peach and soft pear. A very refreshing wine with a hint of zippy acid. Perfect for a warm evening after dinner or even with a salad or lighter spicy foods. The label says “acceptable to serve on the rocks”…Don’t you dare…it’s too good to water down.

 2008 “Frizzante” $18 (S) — Rating 90

Slightly sweet with a light effervescence. A Gold Medal winner in San Francisco Wine Competition, 2010, this wine pairs nicely with a salad, light appetizers and Asian food. Also enjoy it after dinner when something “just a little sweet” is what you crave.
