Taste: light, crisp peach and apple with a smooth finish

Pair With: I paired this wine with shrimp and Broccoli Alfredo

ABV: 12.0%

Wine Review Update/ Feedback

It’s been a while since I did an update. As a writer, I am usually looking for ways to improve my craft. This blog will be no different. Soon, you will notice that I will be adding my opinion to wine reviews. It’s one thing to recommend wine but I also know that if you like a product, you will want to let people know about it. If you don’t, well you want to share that too. You may not have the same taste in wine as me. I may not like some of the wines you enjoy but what we can agree on is that reviews should have an opinion and open communication.

Not only will I add my opinion to my wine reviews but I will also share wine tips. I learned a lot by trial and error. If you are new to wine, you may find my tips useful. If you aren’t so new to wine you may want to leave some feedback. Feedback is always good and if I want to grow my blog, I have to be open to others opinions.

If there is a wine that you like and think I should try. Feel free to leave some feedback. With all the spam and bots out there, my security settings are set for a reason. As long as your feedback is honest, I will clear it to post, even I don’t like what you are asking.

Thank you in advance for following this blog 
