WTN: NV Bonny Doon Vineyard, Framboise, Washington State

by Randy Buckner » Tue Mar 21, 2006 3:00 pm

NV Bonny Doon Vineyard, Framboise, Washington State, $11 (375 ml). Pure crushed raspberry aromas waft from the glass. Super intense on the palate – it’s just like packing your mouth full of ripe raspberries and savoring the effect. The acidity more than handles the 19 percent residual sugar; 92/93.

Thanks for the note. I was very impressed with this also when I tasted it recently. I also rather liked the other Bonny Doon desserts on show, Bouteille Call and Vin de Glacière, but this did steal the show!

I've always thought it ironic that a dessert like this will appeal to me, but a table wine with such an amount of extract I will find repellant!

Bob! I've been here about 20 minutes less than you have ;) Yes I did see them and have given a rather lengthy reply also. (Aside: I hate being so verbose....Nothing is more infuriating than logorrhea.)
