Fenton Winery and Brewery Grin Raspberry. Like the apple, smells like jolly rancher and very sweet. Okay by itself but is to be treated as a sugary cocktail — 12 days ago
Does the world need one more glorious review of residual sugar? Trick question it needs many. This wine gives medium-dry (for the WSET crowd), or semisweet wine a jolly good name. It has that petrol-y stank then airs out and peach Melba jams up. All with an undercurrent of gaseous mineral and—okay we need find new word for mouth-watering—acid. What am I supposed to say, mouth-filling-up-with-saliva acidity? Refreshing? It’s not exactly. Punctilious acidity? That doesn’t even really make sense but it sort of does. Your mouth will water promptly. The petrol notes are pretty hitting so give it some time unless like me you love that stink. Sweet tangerine juice is the ocean all this chaos floats on. It’s very good. — 18 days ago
Goatboy. Natty Loire cab franc. Slightly carbonic. Cherry jolly rancher. Herbs. Funk. Could drink chilled but not today. — 7 days ago
Watermelon jolly rancher in a more serious package than the nouveau. Love the texture of these. — a month ago

I tend to love the weird wines made from masters. Think Paolo Bea Arboreous or Joly Coulee de Serrant or LDH Rose.
Everything about this is artificially flavored candy. It looks like cherry lollipop and smells like red Kool-Aid and Robitusson. Tastes like watermelon Jolly Rancher.
Powerful and viscous as hell, even hot. I know these can age forever and I’d love to see an older bottle. Tons of fun. — a month ago
Fenton Winery and Bewery Crisp Green Apple. Smells like a Jolly Rancher. Would be nice alone but it is a bit much with food. Borderline dessert wine — 12 days ago
This is my favorite moscato yet. Thank you Vietti for being a beautiful winemaker and also making this. If there were white peach jolly ranchers tossed into some grapefruit and Meyer lemon juice and then you dashed in some orange blossom and magically gave it velvet bubbles that’s this. It’s...delicious. You’d think at a mere 5% abv I’d have a cooler word than “delicious” but damn this is. — a month ago
