Obsession Symphony is made from a wine grape crossing of Grenache Gris and Muscat of Alexandria and was developed in 1948 by UC Davis professor, Dr. Harold Olmo.
The Kautz Family has the most significant plantings of this unique and seductive variety. Captivating aromas of gardenia, honeysuckle and star jasmine lead to remarkably full flavors … passion fruit, pineapple, lychee, peaches, ginger … slightly fruity, not cloying, nicely acidic … time for another sip! Seared sea scallops, gooey triple cream or savory bleu cheeses, spicy cuisine – vindaloo and pad Thai come to mind – are unbelievable pairings. On its own, Obsession Symphony is an ideal aperitif.
