Corked bottle at the cellar in Woodinville
Deep, dark ruby color. The aroma comes in waves: Cabernet followed by blackcurrant. Semi sweet mouthfeel, but with final astringency that makes it drier, red grape juice, berries juice, warming alcohol feeling.

750, corked and foiled at balefire. Pours a nearly opaque purplish black. Big bright fruity black currant nose, not much honey showing. Fairly light watery body. Has flavor intensity of a fruit wine without the cloying sugar. Nice mead.
