Bodegas Gutiérrez de la Vega 2005 Casta Diva Cosecha Miel, about $29/500 ml
Can’t eat another thing after the holidays? Me neither, yet I still want a little something sweet at the end of the day. A sweet sip of Casta Diva Cosecha Miel does the trick. This “Honey Harvest” lives up to its name in its golden hue and flavors so sweet they seem to buzz. Made from muscat grown in Alicante on Spain’s Costa Blanca, it’s packed with exotic, sunny flavors, from almond nougat to tropical fruit with orange blossom scents. The price may seem steep, but a bottle goes a long way.
