Bottle @ Redstone. Light pink pour. Aromas of grape skin, oak, and honey. A charred, tannic oak note. Sweet fruit on the back end. Flavor is quite vinous.

ok, latest red stone. glass from a bottle at vintage. light brown and clear. no detectable aroma, very quiet. taste is well made and easy to take, fairly enjoyable for a mead. honey is just the right amount. not bad overall. better than the average mead. gnoff (10788) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
Bottle at Redstone in Boulder, on October 8, 2012arminjewell (9720) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2012
As "Pinot Pyment".
Clear pale cherrywood color, no head. Sweet and tart scent. Tart, grape taste. Tart finish. Smooth mouthfeel. Oak in the aftertaste as well.
Pour out of bottle labeled as Pinot Pyment, pour was slightly orange slight hint of yellow. Aroma was big oaky grapes, hints of honey, touch of port like notes with dry red grape notes. Taste was a mix of pinot grapes, hints of honey but really dominated by the grapes, which actually was fairly well done.

Sampled at Cajun Cafe’s 2011 Fall Beer Festival. Pours a still medium red. Nose is lots of tart grapes and light honey. Flavor is similar- tart vinous quality with a dry finish akin to pinot noir. The mead behind it must be a dry mead, or a dryer mead because the concentrate takes over the finish and leaves with a dry red wine quality. This light-bodied mead has some legs.

Clear light yellow with an aroma of pinot noir wine, grapes, and dryness. Taste was very wine-like, but not terribly dry. Had some slight honey in there all along. Smooth wine dryness and grapes, not as harsh as the nose. Basically a white wine with a touch of honey. JaBier (8156) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2011
2003 bottle sampled at the Mead Mountain tasting on 1/8/11. Pours a clear blush color. Honey aroma with red berries. By nose I can’t tell whether this one will be sweet or dry. No matter, I’ve been fooled by the aroma before. Flavor is honey and red wine. Finishes dry and funky with a bit of sweetness and a bit of carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Sample from 2003 bottle at the Mead Molehill tasting on 01/10/2011. Yellow-ruby color with no head or lacing. Aroma of berries and grapes. Medium dry body with flavors of tart fruit, sweet spice and honey. The finish is fruity and lingers awhile. Decent overall.
