Moscatel de Setúbal 2012The Setúbal D.O. has to contain at least 67% Moscatel de Setúbal (Muscat of Alexandria) grapes, or Moscatel Roxo (Red Muscat). Those that contain at least 85 per cent Moscatel are allowed to call themselves Moscatel de Setúbal, or Moscatel Roxo. Grapes for these sweet, fortified wines, whether red or white, are fermented with their skins and then grape brandy is added to stop the fermentation. The fragrant, flavorful skins are left to macerate in the wine for another few months, and then the wine is drained off to be aged for a minimum of eighteen months in oak. Sold at this stage, Setúbal is yellow, sweetly floral and citrus flavored, Moscatel Roxo darker, and rose-scented. Only small quantities are further aged in wood to become, after 20 years, a dark nectar, with complex, intense aromas and flavors of nuts and dried fruits, citrus and honey, ranking amongst the world’s greatest fortified Muscats.
JMF Moscatel de Setúbal 2012"Big bouquet boasting orange blossom, vanilla, citrus, lemon, and key lime aromatics. Then comes in a little caramel and toffee. Rich and thick on the palate, clearly sweet, but with ample alcohol and acidity to keep the sugar in check. A touch of warmth on the finish amongst the dried fruit and honey finish. Enjoy with biscotti, and do not be afraid to dip. It's like Oreos and milk for adults!" Online Review
"Neighbourhood guide: Los Angeles
Round off your shopping spree at Wine Stop, a boutique wine shop with a vineyard-to-table concept serving bottles from some of the best independent producers. If you're not sure what to buy, don't worry: there's a tasting bar at the back of the shop where you can take your time." - Monocle, December 2019/January 2020

"Fabulous wines, all curated, all great prices. Enjoyed talking to a Sonoma vintner (Winery 16600) who was pouring his latest wines...Wine Stop is now my must go to place whenever I'm downtown...Go, you will not be disappointed!" Yelp.com
"Owner Alvaro Cardenas is AMAZING. I needed to send a digital gift card to someone in LA and Alvaro was patient + kind enough to work with me to get the e-gift card out. The recipient is thrilled and it wouldn't have happened without the exceptional customer service provided by Mr. Cardenas. Highly recommend Wine Stop DTLA and will be using the shop for all my LA-based wine gifting needs." Google.com
"You know when you got something good, something great, but it's TOO good, TOO great, to the point where you almost don't want everyone to know about it? That's Wine Stop to me. And that's why I struggle over writing this review. I got introduced to Wine Stop almost 2 years ago and what seemed like an eclectic destination for entrepreneurs, artists, smugglers, dancers, models, photographers, recovering pickup artists, fashion designers, filmmakers, general bon vivants, and Taiwanese people has become a 2nd home whenever I'm in LA... which is sometimes every week."
