COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A wild cherry that grows prolifically throughout Montana, the Chokecherry got tis name because it doesn’t sweeten until after a frost. Montanans have used it for years to make their favorite syrup and jelly. This tradition inspired our winemaker to marry this familiar flavor with local honey and to create a true Montana mead and the winner of our first gold medal. Serve slightly chilled.

This was the first disappointment I had from these guys. The choke cherries are both dry and bitter and the balance with the sweetness just doesn’t quite work right.

750ml bottle thanks to Jake65. Pours out a rusty pink. Nose is sweetness, cough drop cherries, and some earth. Taste is cough syrup cherries, some honey sweetness. Not bad but not good. If they did more traditional honey mead and just a little cherries this maybe really good.

Bottle. Pours a still deep pink to red. Aroma is sweet white wine and some slight honey sugar. Taste is candy, otter pop cherry and some tropical fruits. Guava, pineapple, not cloyingly sweet. More sweetened wine but has loads of honey minus the mouth feel. Tasted a little overly koolaid to give it a higher ranking.
