Day 106-Plum Wine by Lynfred Winery for $13
This wine, like all Lynfred fruit wines, is 100% plums. If you have ever been to an asian restaurant where they have served plum wine, you have a reference point for this wine. This wine is not as sweet as those plum wines in the asian restaurant, but this wine has some sweetness and a tart finish. This wine is a better fall wine than summer wine, but it still very tasty. Cooperhawk winery also makes a plum wine which is also very good, that wine tastes almost the same as this wine. This wine also comes in the half bottle, for those who only want a glass or two. This wine would great with dessert whether that be cheese or cake. It is a nice balance of sweet and tart without being overpowering. We drank this wine with fried chicken on Father's Day and it went well, however it is really too hot out for this wine at 11% alcohol and a slightly thicker consistency.
