Day 162-Blackberry Wine by Lynfred Winery of Roselle, Il for $10.00
In September, Lynfred started a fruit wine club which we joined in addition to the white wine club. Now all the fruit wines cost us $10 per bottle. This is a deal, because the full bottles, the 750 ml, are all generally over $10. This wine is 100% blackberries, and that is the flavor some tart balanced with some sweet, but totally blackberry. I found the wine to go much better with chocolate than on its own, however it is good on its own, it is superb with chocolate. This wine needs to be chilled and probably one glass is enough. I have found that with fruit wines you need to drink them in a short period of time from the time they are bottled. This wine was just bottled, as when the fruit wines by the case were on sale, it was not available. And once you open the bottle, you need to finish it in 1 to 2 days or the vinegar takes over since there is so much sugar in the wine.
