Visual: Real cork. Pours blood red, ultra clear and thicker viscosity.

Nose: bursting tangy raspberry juice with some currant and alcohol in the backend – awesome. (lvl-10)-pungency

Attack: tingly-tangy, dense fruity raspberry

Mid-palate: (lvl-7-sweetness), big tangy-zingy-sour alcohol, tangy raspberry juice,

Finish: fruity tart, red/black currant/raspberry depth, soft alcoholic throat warmth, lingering tangy acidity.

Summary: Consistent with their Blackberry [B] and Cranberry [B-] fortified wines, this raspberry is also full of authentic berry depth and a structured alcoholic body. It gets somewhat more aggressive at is warms, but is still very engaging.
