Alba Vineyard Red Raspberry 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a wine that is truly unique. It is produced entirely from whole red raspberries, fermented on the skins for twenty days to maximize the fresh berry character. The wine is finished sweet, with a slight tart edge to provide a rich berry experience without a cloying, syrupy finish. As a result, it is one of the few wines that can marry well with chocolate desserts. It is delicious mixed with Champagne, as in a 'Kir Royale,' or simply served in a small glass as one would serve port or sherry. Our winemaker made this wine for the first time in 1983, and it has since received numerous regional, national, and international awards, most recently scoring a gold medal in the World Wine Competition and a double-gold medal in the Tasters' Guild International Competition." -Winery
