2010 Quady Red Electra Muscat, California

Add some Black Muscat to Orange Muscat and — voila! — you have Red Electra. The color is a transparent neon raspberry with shadings of violet. The nose has a dark floral edge to it, showing roses, honeysuckle and geranium, along with dark berry jelly. There is a sweet-tart sensation on the palate, balancing out the high sugar levels. This is a versatile dessert-style wine that would pair well with Black Forest cake or pies made with cherries, berries or even strawberry-rhubarb.
MSRP: $13 (April 2012)
