12/6/10 – I went looking in my cellar for this wine, I had not seen it in a while, It was pushed to the rear.
It is clear, a maple syrup color, slightly sweet and needs some acid correction.
I will be racking it soon adding campden and seeing if I can get to lower the acid a bit.
so far- the coffee/vanilla flavors are spot on. If I can get the acid balanced- I may add a touch of glycerin to give it some more body.
