Rogov hi
i just recieved an email promoting wines (http://www.kosherwine.com/cgi-bin/produ ... neID=10442) and one of them is this apple sweet aperitivo, not sure if its called "wine" tough, anyway i was wondering if you had tasted it, and can you also tell me more about this "wine" ? can it be some kind of Calvados ??

Please and Thank you !!

Menach, Hi.....

Wines these are not, but made from apples, fruit wines they are. And definitely not to be compared to Calvados because these are made as wines unlike Calvados which is a distilled apple brandy.

At any rate, I first tasted the Pinnacle fruit wines when visiting Vinoble in Jerez de Fronteira several months ago. I was quite favorably impressed. My tasting notes follow.

Domaine Pinnacle, Ice Cider, Quebec, 2005: Absolutely delicious, calling to mind ice-cold apple juice with a decided alcoholic kick (12%), a dessert-style qua ice-style fruit wine shows generous apple and apricot fruits, those backed up by notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, all on a vibrant background Lingers comfortably and remarkably clean on the palate. Drink now. Score 88. K

Domaine Pinnacle, Sparkling Ice Cider, Quebec, 2006: With generous fine bubbles, a sparkling ice cider showing green and red apple notes along with (surprisingly enough) hints of grapes, spices and lanolin. Light, with moderate sweetness well balanced by natural acidity and a well balanced, lightly honeyed note on the finish. Drink now-2009. Score 88. K
