Cherry Chipotle

Honey wine with cherry juice and Chipotle peppers.

The sweet matches the heat in this brilliant wine with a kick. Bold, sweet cherry rolls seamlessly into a mild honey character that's quickly engulfed by a kick of smoky chipotle peppers that warms and tingles the mouth. Full-bodied with a wonderful balance of sweet and heat that lingers in the finish. Deep ruby-red, still and brilliantly clear with thick, streaming legs.
