Appearance: liquid berries – blueberry, mulberry, and cranberry. Deep and polished like a liquid precious gem.
Nose: cold blueberries, flesh and skin included. Pomace, pits, and stems for sweet bitter tannic harmony. Purple, black, and red grapes. Wild berries.
Palate: not heavy or too light, just right. Berry forward with faint honey hints. Grapes and blueberries in the breath. Tingles in the back with tannic bitterness of skins and grape seeds; pomace. Clean profile and delicious. Silken honey along the edges with berry taking center stage.
Final Thoughts: delicious. The color on first pour kind of scared me but happiness waited with each sip and each glass until the bottle was empty. B. Nektar takes a lot of risk with some of their meads and I have yet to taste one that did not pay off in flavor goodness.
