Jamestown Cellars Settlers' Spiced Wine
Jamestown Cellars Settler's Spiced Wine revives a Colonial tradition. Cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices were added to this Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Designed as a mulled wine, it is meant to be served warm during winter by the fireplace, or after a cold day outdoors. When served chilled in the summer months, it makes an agreeable substitute to Sangria. The art of adding spices, or mulling wine is a centuries-old tradition. In the cold winters of northern Europe, wine would often be served warm during the holiday season. The English brought this custom to Virginia in the 16th century.
One of Virginia's largest wineries producing over 60,000 cases per year. For the 3rd consecutive year "Decanter World Wine Awards" of London has rated several Williamsburg Winery wines as some of the "Worlds Best Wines". NOW OPEN, Wedmore Place, a 28 room luxury hotel on the grounds of the winery. www.wedmoreplace.com
What a fun wine for the holidays or for a winter warm up! Not a fine wine to be served with dinner, but a wonderful option to offer with holiday cookies or a cheese tray. Bold taste...great at room temp. or chilled. Much better than hot chocolate!
I Freakin' love this straight-no-chaser non vintage wine! Christmas in July??? HECK YEA I THINK SO. Now I can enjoy the holidays all year round in my room, on an airplane, with a woman, with many women, and while driving on interstate I-95. Buy this NOW NOW NOW. In my professional opinion $9 is way too cheap for this exquisite wine that would make Zraly and Spurrier weep obsidian tears and run home to mama, before fathering a spice wine love-child. Yea you figure that out.
Luv this wine! Very smooth and lots of flavor and I usually don't like red wine as much.
