Jeremy's Berry Blend

Here's Jeremy's Berry Blend.  Homebrewed, though I don't know the ingredients.  Let's see what comes through...

In the glass: Jeremy's Berry Blend shows as very light red in the glass, with elements of pink and light brick.

On the nose: Poured without a decant and swirled vigorously, the berry wine pours out an overwhelming fruit punch aroma, sweet and friendly and lifted high with the alcohol.  

On the palate: The first element is a bright and dry berry bite at the back of your tongue.  Then a nice balance builds between the fruit, the acid and the light sweetness.  A violet/lavendar perfumed aroma comes on at the later point in each sip, racing across your mouth.

And the finish: Sweet acids wrap up the sip, with elements of that intriguing perfume lingering.

In summary: Overall, a well-balanced, light, tangy, friendly and punch-fruit driven experience.  Though red in color, the balance of sugar, acids and fruits more resembles a pleasant, off-dry white wine.  Definitely worth a return visit!
