Amber color. Aromas and flavors of wormwood and grapefruit, anise, clove, and mint, and dried flowers and wet cedar shavings with a velvety, tangy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, complex, medium-long finish with notes of orange zest, almond skins, anise and dried herbs, and tamarind and cardamon. Excellent balance of sweet and bitter with some vibrant fruit and floral notes; the pronounced orange note just screams to be used in a Negroni.

Wine Specialty is a category for higher alcohol wine based on aperitifs with a variety of flavorings that are sold in the spirits channel, but are not traditional fortified wines. This includes fruit aperitifs from Poland at 36 proof made from cherry and peach; Pineau des Charentes, a French aperitif made from wine grapes and Cognac eau-de-vie, and spiced dessert wine, made from herbs steeped in sweet wine. These specialty wines can have multiple purposes, be it drinking on their own, use in cocktails or even in cooking.
