brokensail (16342) - Dublin, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
The pour is a nice dark purple-red color with great clarity. An intense grape aroma to it, which is nice. But, theres also some cough syrup qualities to it. Mild Kool Aid and booze. Things are pretty much the same on the palate. Big red grape and sweet grape juice flavors. Seems to have a slight tannic feel and a definite booziness.

hopscotch (10944) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Bottle Pours clear and burnt orange with several, long, meaty, Monica Brant-like legs. The aromatic highlights are honey and Cabernet grapes and skins. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and zero carbonation. The flavor provides honey up front, then drying, warm methanol. Suggestions of cherry and blackberry fruitiness are noted as well. Sweet, vanilla, lightly acidic, and then dry finish. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

Red pour, no head. Flavors of red wine, grapes and honey. A real treat that I enjoyed more than some of the other Kuhn meads I have tried. I like the use of the wine.
