Smells like: bruised rose petals, raspberry, cherry, pink candy coating
Tastes like: fruity and floral with a terrific mousse, silky texture and extended finish.
Domaine Meriwether 2001 Vintage Cuvee from Eugene, Oregon. This might be a local folks only wine but if you are local go buy it. Not all of it though because we want some more. This has all of the appeal of champagne with a $28 pricetag. Plus it was named for Meriwether Lewis – as in Lewis and Clark. How cool is that?
Smells like: like it spent 10 years on lees
