Oud Framboise 2019

 Fermented with raspberries, guava, brett and lacto and aged for 27 months in Pinot Noir, Syrah and Makers Mark whiskey barrels. This is a new take on our highly popular Oud Framboise.. For this batch we used a lighter base, added guava to the blend and came out with a delicately flavored and truly delightful sour that will surely not disappoint.  The chatoyant mahogony hue and the floral nose invite the senses in to savor tart raspberries and a lingering tang of tropical guava.  Pair with  cheesecake topped with raspberries or a cheese and charcuterie board garnished with fresh fruit.
