Adams County Winery Tears of Gettysburg NV

Member Review by Philip James:

Bad, bad nose - mercaptins? brettanomyacins? Something is very very wrong with this wine, and i hope its just this bottle. To be honest i think thats probably it, but its the most faulty bottle ive had in several years. Behind that? almost impossible to tell, but sweet, i think.

Awesome wine!!!! The best I've ever had. I'm not a wine critic. Who cares about that! To each their own! Try it if you like a sweet wine. I do. If you don't, then definitely stay away from this masterpiece and choose another more dry wine for boring taste buds. Just joking. The world is full of variety for a reason. Born in Virginia, there is just something about a wine in the heart of one of the turning points in the Civil War. Grown in the fields where those tears shaped America today.

Yes, well I love it. I used to think you had to drink dry wine to be cool. Well as I got older and do not succumb to popular opinion I have found myself drinking and loving semi-sweet and sweet wine more and more. Why? Because it tastes good. I like to taste the grape and I like being able to swallow the wine without screwing up my face and then pretend that it was excellent. I drink what tastes good to me and T of G tastes as fine as any Niagara I have tried.
