Vintage Ink Wine 2005

Member Review by webwckr:

Here's the truth: at $7.95/btl here in Vermont, this wine is a delight and a wonderful little gem and a steal. Very fruity, smooth and quite good. Can be a "tad" sweet but there is a hint of spice, so the sweet fruit doesn't destroy the palate. Went well with Asian food (brown garlic sauce), but it drinks VERY well on its own. The finish is also surprisingly good for a wine in this price range. Go ahead, serve it to a cocktail crowd. Am stocking up on this one!

I truly love this wine. Looked for it again tonight. While I may not pair it with dinner, it is my go-to wine after dinner. Perhaps it's just my imagination and craving, or maybe the vanilla bean, but it always feels so self-indulgent like I just had a rich chocolate cake with a warm deep cherry sauce. It's far more subtle and round than wines I typically view as sweet wines. My only complaint is that I have a hard time finding it now compared to two years ago.
