Winemaker's Notes

Number 88 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

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.

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.

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!

Unlike my last purchase I found this order to be significantly sweeter. Far to sweet for my taste.
