@Cerridwyn with a Lab Rat Report, confirming voice to text still has a way to go I would actually get some because I like sweet wine. If you like something sweeter than most muskats, you might give it a try.

Okay,let’s try this again since I lost my first post before I got it quite done… Lap rat here with no graphic because I’m dictating this on my phone…
Got this on the mail today and was very surprised to find it to be a desert wine… It comes in a very beautiful bottle and is a definitely apricot in color or even a pale orange. If you will. After uncorking the synthetic cork (took me 3 tries ) I poured a glass and it is definitely still a very pale pinkish orange or orange juice pink. Whichever way you want to go.
Has a very mild smell to me not very strong not very alcoholly like some things are? Is that a word?
And it’s very fruity and very sweet… Probably one of the sweetest wines. I’ve tried in a very long time and I have had some Angelica’s before.
After tasting it didn’t making some conclusions. I went to Google it and I noticed that the people at cellar tracker didn’t like it at all. Said it was too sweet. It is not one of those dessert lines that you can drink add another point and just treat it like a sweet wine. It is very definitely a dessert wine as far. As far as How sweet did it is.
If you do not like very sweet wine stone go there you probably won’t care for it… If you like something sweeter than most muskats or sweeter than a still mead. Then you might give it worth a try.
I would actually get some because I like sweet wine but I am out of the area more than I am in the area over the next 4-6 weeks and don’t want to have where it might land up but it wouldn’t land with me.
@Cerridwyn how’s the acidity?
@Cerridwyn You said “muskats” and I immediately thought this:
@klezman imho not at all.
@Kyeh gotta love voice to text in the middle of the night huh?
@Cerridwyn I’m not following. Dessert wine needs sufficient acidity to balance the sugar and keep it tasting fresh rather than syrupy. Take icewine - it’s got twice as much sugar as this but has a ton of acidity to balance it. Is this fresh? Refreshing? Cloying? Syrupy?
This is really almost too sweet. States more like fruit juice than a sweet ice wine.
You’re in the broader LA area, yes? We should get together over a few bottles of dessert wine!
@klezman was. Now i am central coast
How much more are you saving by buying a full case?

NV Miss Stella Desert Wine - $25 = 22.73%
Must be dry
@ttboy23 ha! I thought you had gone mad at first…then I noticed this on the front page “Desert Wine”. Well played…well played indeed!
@ttboy23 still a mystery to me how ppl can (still!) misspell dessert.
But maybe they do indeed make up this concoction in the desert!
Broken Earth Winery - Dessert Wine - Miss Stella
Lab rat report here, with the bottle that almost wasn’t! After some shipping and delivery issues, we got our hands on this lovely bottle of Miss Stella. We were excited to try this dessert wine and see what it was like.
After opening, it takes a moment, but there’s a beautiful raspberry-like vapor, with strong notes of grape. On sipping, it’s like am apricot-colored blanket of honey and grape juice. It leaves a nice coat in the glass and in the mouth.
It is a sweet-sweet wine, no chance of being called a dry here. The favors are simple and you can briefly feel the spirit at the end, as it aspirates on the palate.
Being as this is a sweet dessert wine, it would pair well with a tart fresh fruit, like raspberries or blackberries or something more seasonal like pomelo. It would probably also go well with a slightly sweet lemon dessert, like a soft lemon cookie. I almost want try it with Limon potato chips to test it against citric acid. Instead we tried it with bread & butter and a good lemon-infused honey but I bet it would be even more amazing with a yuzu lemon curd tart.
Overall this is a sweet dessert wine that would go well chilled on a summers eve with fresh fruit from the berry bush or a good tart.
@imshadow22 colder the better and i this tart would go well
What’s a desert wine? Have to drink it only in the desert? Yes, I’m being a smart ass. The wine is listed as “desert wine” instead of “dessert wine.”

@warpedrotors what’s the connection?
@rjquillin @warpedrotors Seems like they are in Arizona (desert country).
@rjquillin no connection to the wine being offered here, but they are wines from the desert. The misspelling inspired me to post actual desert wines.
That is Maynard James Keenan’s winery. He used to be a partner in Arizona Stronghold wines which occasionally showed up on the old site. Still have a few bottles!
