Here’s a style of wine I don’t drink to much.  I usually am not a fan of sweet dessert wine.  However, lately I have acquired a taste for well crafted dessert wine.  By well crafted, it’s to my taste buds.   I don’t like it overly sweet and syrupy.

This Paperbirch 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Fine Ruby Dessert Wine is from Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent, NY.  This wine is 18% alcohol.

On the nose you get that sweet smell with raisins and alcohol. This wine had nice balance and a soft and silky feel in my mouth.  It was not overly sweet.  The flavors that came out were cherry and raisins.

I really enjoyed this wine after dinner.  We had it with apple pie and  I think it will go real well with something chocolate.
