Bottle shared with bauermj. A clear light pink in color and completely still. Nose is phenomenal, vinous merlot character and some honey in the background. The wine like nature of the mead is a little lost in the flavor, its a little post among the sweetness from the honey. Itís still there, it just takes a back seat. Mouthfeel is smooth, not boozy, sweet, and a long finish. One of the better meads Iíve had from Kuhnhenn. Still not entirely sure how to properly rate a mead, but I think this is one of the better ones Iíve had.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate honey, lighter strawberry, and light vinous notes. It pours a pinkish white-gold with no head. There are some thin legs left behind after a quick swirl. The flavor starts with a quick dose of strawberry. There is some light-moderate honey in the middle. The finish has light vinous notes and a hint of apple. Itís medium bodied with minimal carbonation.
