Review date: September 25, 2014

Wine Review: This yellow colored dessert wine from the Finger Lakes opens with a golden raisin and tiramisu like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, sweet, and shows some acidity. The flavor profile is a golden raisin and quince blend with hints of honey and touch of apple. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger after the wine is gone. This dessert wine would pair well with sharp cheddar cheese and stone wheat crackers. Enjoy - Ken

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
