Bronze color. Aromas of dried cherry and apple, marzipan, wet leaves, sun dried tomato, pressed flowers, bouquet garni, and mirepoix with a satiny, vibrant, sweet thin body and a smooth, brisk iron, demi glace, sweet tea, and concord grape jelly finish. A solid vermouth that might gussy up a sangria or play well with brandy.

Vermouth is an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with certain spices and herbs, including tree barks, seeds and flowers.

Historically there were two main vermouth styles, a sweet Italian vermouth and a drier, lighter French vermouth. Today many styles of dry and sweet, red and white vermouths are made in many regions of the world. More and more diversity in style is seen with the success of new-world, craft vermouths entering the market. Enjoy these wines on the rocks, with soda, or in your favorite classic cocktails like a Manhattan, Martini, or Negroni.
