1 rating, 1 with reviewFlamespeak - Manning, SC55/3/2012This wine is delicious. It is a blend of a white grape wine with succulent plum. Sips great, smooth finish, very slight burn when swallowing. The light and very sweet taste makes it good for a snacking or dessert wine, and it is best served cold or over ice (to which it stands up well). The only downside to this wine is that it is made with plums, which means it WILL have the same effect as prune juice on most folks, so drink it sparingly unless you want a good kick to your digestive system. I still rate it as a five out five because it has one of the best fruity tastes out of all the wines I have tried over the years.
Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
