Symphony “A GARNACHA ROJA × MUSCAT OF ALEXANDRIA cross bred by Harold P Olmo in 1940 at the University of California at Davis and released in 1983 (Walker 2000).”
My first introduction to Symphony was at Scott Harvey in Plymouth, CA. Jana Wines series “One Last Kiss” white blend (Chardonnay, Mendocino Riesling, Symphony, New York Cayuga). Floral & off-dry, Delicious blend, repeat purchase at the winery.
My next introduction at Michael David in Lodi.
“ These estate grown grapes are some of the first plantings of its varietal in the state.” Floral & Fruity, Lodi fruit, 11% ABV, Love the Muscat qualities, repeat purchase at the winery.
Now, Maple Creek Winery - Artevino - Estate Symphony. Its nice to see Symphony from a cooler climate. White floral, grapefruit & lemon, zippy acidity. Nice seafood wine. 13.4% ABV, would be interested in a sparkling version. Textbook wine, pull up the Symphony page on wine-searcher.com :)

Riktigt trevligt oranginovino. Ett av de bästa jag provat. Gåva. — a year ago
Light straw color. Mild taste but builds to a citrus when warms. Not oaky but lemon minerals. Delicate citrus and apples aroma.
Little immediately upfront then builds to dry slight green apple tart in the middle. A long slight dry crisp finish. This really opens up when it warms. Vermentino grapes — a year ago
Very nice Syrah aromatics of flowers, black pepper, olives with good precision and definition that you can also feel on the palate with gorgeous pure fruit. Powerful yet supple enough tannins to make it beautifully enjoyable, excellent. 92-93
Magnifique Nez très typé Syrah avec du poivre, très floral, olives. La bouche est puisssante, gourmande mais avec des tannins assez souples qui en font un vin succulent. Belle précision et pureté de fruit. 92-93 — 5 months ago
