Miss Kitty and I bottled our latest batch of wine today, a mezza luna red that's semi dry with hints of oak and raspberry. We tasted it and I have to say that unless this impudent bad girl mellows a bit more, we've got a kick ass red suitable to serve at pig roasts or with bear sausage.
Yes, yes, I'm aware that it will mellow over time and just need to be patient, but dang. Though I must admit, I'm pleased with the alcohol content in this batch of wine over the last batch. The last one, a barolo, was a bit on the light side, coming in at 12%, while this one is 13.5%, which in my opinion lends itself to a cleaner taste, much more refreshing on the palate, and a better accompaniment to a meal.
