Bill's family Blackberry Honey Wine

 So Bill's family owns a winery too? No kidding... Something of a given considering the make up of the Gasser Lounge crew and all our superfriends; their particular speciality is Honey Wine which I can only imagine is the shit that Little John of Robin Hood and his Merry Men fame would have brewed... and Wowza! Did it pack a punch... I didn't figure on the high alcohol content when I was swiggin' it. Little did I suspect... I should have known better.

 The barrel fermentation of this honey wine in French oak results in subtle vanilla undertones that match well with the floral components of the honey source. Sur lie aging adds complexity and improved mouthfeel. Although the alcohol content is high at 16.5%, one does not detect excessive heat.

If you think you've tried everything, you need to try this too...
