The sweet matches the heat in this brilliant wine with a kick. We started with Michigan wildflower honey and a ton of Michigan cherry juice. Once fermented, we added a lion’s share of red chipotle peppers to give it a smokey character and medium spice level. A fantastic wine for dessert. Try pairing this with rich chocolate cake.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 Bottle. Coppery, burgundy body. Cherry and chipotle on the nose. Flavor is cherry juice and chili-burn. Pretty straight forward, but it works. Very nice actually.

Very sweet, but matched with a nice cherry burst and lingering smoky, pepper burn on the finish. I would recommend as a nice dessert pairing during the fall/winter.

Chipotle pepper smell. Cherry chipotle taste that is only slightly better than the smell due to the fruit. Mild smokey heat with a medium body.

Deep crimson red color. Aroma is sweet and smokey with a punch of spice. Taste starts off with sweet honey and slightly tart cherries. Nice smokey chipotle flavor comes on at end and loingers a bit in after taste. Nice array of flavors in this mead. Enjoyable experience. Would drink again.

Rask0lnikov (786) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 9, 2016
Dark red colour. No head. Honey, cherries and spices in the aroma. Sweetness, cherries, chilli or chipottle in the end. Spiceness also in the aftertaste. Sweetness, hints of sourness and spiceness are well balanced. Low carbonated, sweet, rather medium bodied drink which should be enjoyed in small quantities.
