DESSERT

Viña Tabalí 2009 Reserva Late Harvest Muscat
Limarí Valley, Chile

The tabalí in Viña Tabalí means "passage of waters" in the local dialect. Waters do run through northern Chile's Limarí Valley (near the Atacama Desert), where the winery and its vineyards are situated. Made from estate-grown grapes, Viña Tabalí's 2009 Reserva Late Harvest Muscat is unsurprisingly sweet. It offers rich and complex flavors of apricot, papaya and honey and a smooth, soft finish.

Rating: 14/20
