The wine authority can generally effect an air of dignity and earnest reverence in the presence of the subject of his
or her ardor. But gathered in herds, wine geeks inevitably fall prey to the temptation to describe, and describe in
such a fashion as to demonstrate the length of one's thesaurus. Fortunately, we have Framboise, a potion so singular
in its sensory frequency that we may leave our descriptor lists at home. This is all and simply about the raspberry and
the ingenious ways we might integrate Framboise into our lives. Perhaps the thesaurus is not without utility, for with the
continued increase in the percentage of the Morrison variety, we must find news ways of expressing what lies beyond lashings
of raspberry, explosions of raspberry flavor, eruptions of raspberry zest, the quiddity of the essence raspberry, an
extravasation of raspberry lava, etc. Or, simply pour a generous slosh over some flourless chocolate cake and know what
it is to sit under a banyan tree and contemplate new found enlightenment.

Fun! Fruity! Delish! My sister loves it over ice cream. :0)
I first tried this at pacific's edge, in Carmel,Ca. It is a great finnisher with a cheese assortment.
Sweet, rich, just a tiny tad syrupy . . . you definitely want to give this one a good swirl to get the full raspberry aroma.

First tried this on a whim in 2006. It is a great desert wine by itself or poured on ice cream, or other deserts. Be aware it is very sweet, so use it lightly!
I have been drinking Randall Graham's Fruit Infusions since the early 1990's.... The Framboise being my favorite. I drink it as I would a Liquor, in small cordial glasses. It is a delight to sip. Serve slightly chilled and especially good with Chocolate!! Give me Ganache with a shot of Framboise and I'm in heaven! Randall also makes a Peach (Eau de Vie) and a Vin de Glacier (similar to German Eiswein). Wonderully quirky and always delightful, I maintain one can't go wrong with this vintner.
Unlike my last purchase I found this order to be significantly sweeter. Far to sweet for my taste.

My wife loved it & would buy it again. Strong sweet fruit flavor. The grower's description is accurate.
Very sweet, excellent berry taste!
A Customer - oak grove, mo
the description is senseless babble- but this is a very good wine.
A Customer - Florida
I love this wine, its decadent. I served it as a cocktail at my last dinner party and all the guests couldn't get enough. Use champagne flutes:
- drop in 3 raspberries
- a pour of framboise
- fill with champagne
Like berry heaven!
A Customer - Los Angeles, California
I had never tried this wine before, but I can say it is a very enjoyable wine. One you have to share with someone special. The taste of the raspberries is full and pleasurable. It leaves you wanting more.
A Customer - Eureka, CA
"Prepare to get your groove on with this delectable creation. Sensational fruit aroma and flavor. Feel like a bird in a berry patch, or a bee in a field of flowers. Don't even think about drinking it alone; you must share it with your sweetheart."
A Customer - Minnesota
I like the wine and I like the Bonny Doon attitude. This wine is very tasty and I'll buy it again. BD also makes a really nice Vin d'Glacier, which I like even more than the Framboise.
