    July 31, 2012 - Very sweet and a little sickly. Would be fine in small doses with a chocolate dessert.

    April 11, 2010 - More raspberry wine than grape. At first it was kind of refreshing, although very sweet. As the bottle sat there, the fruitiness started to muddle. I kind of wish I had another bottle to try an experiment: reduce it down and add some chocolate as an ice cream or cake topping.

    April 17, 2009 - This tastes like a raspberry wine. Very sweet to the point of being a little disgusting. We drank it after roasted chicken, ladies liked it, guys hated it.

    February 15, 2009 - This dessert wine was as expected - sweet with black raspberry and a bit of stemminess. Uncomplicated but it paired beautifully with chocolate lave cake.

    December 30, 2007 - Not nearly as great as I thought it would be. Hopefully decanting would help... but our crowd was unimpressed with its flavor and lack of complexity. Secretly hoping it was the framboise... Oh well.
