About the Wine

Our Sunny’s Block is a tribute to our beloved JUSTIN winery dog, Sunny, a yellow lab who would trek all the way back to our small block of Orange Muscat vines just before harvest to partake of one of the greatest treats on the face of the earth… ripe, orange muscat grapes. Sunny was one smart dog who knew how to live well for his fifteen years on this earth! This dessert wine, while sweet on the entry, finishes refreshingly crisp and fresh, and shows a beguiling, complex mixture of fruit, spice, and flowers.

Palate

The 2018 Sunny’s Block has an attractive mix of citrus, white flowers, peach, and tropical fruit on the entry, with sweetness matched by acidity that lightens the palate and keeps things fresh and clean throughout.
