Treos 2016 Dry Muscat (Willamette Valley)
92 Points Editors’ Choice
Two different Muscat clones are blended, and the wine is finished completely dry. The aromas are classic for the variety—rosewater, orange peel and citrus blossom. Flavors of orange, apricot and peach rule the palate, with a hint of brioche through the lengthy finish. Have fun pairing this with a variety of spicy noodle dishes.

Treos Wines 2016 Dry Muscat, Willamette Valley, $21
By Great Northwest Wine on January 24, 2019Dave Jepson’s three decades working for Hewlett-Packard led him to Europe, and his time in Alsace continues to inspire his love for Muscat. It shows, and his consistency with these varieties has made him one of the Pacific Northwest’s top magicians with Muscat done dry. In 2016, his blend of estate fruit near Monmouth, Ore., cropped to 1.5 tons per acre guided him to Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains (65%) vs. Muscat Ottonel (35%). Some years, it has been the opposite, yet the results are just as delicious. Beautiful tropical notes include lychee and ripe pineapple, and the structure is far from soapy. Rather, it’s vibrant, spicy and even tingly. There’s a barely perceptible level of residual sugar (0.5%), allowing it to play either as an aperitif or with seafood. For a dry Muscat, this is about as good as it gets.
