Slivery straw color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit zest, white plum, sage and thyme, and anise with a velvety, soft, dryish medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-length finish revealing notes of lemon and orange, lemon verbena, dried white flowers, and fennel seed and coriander. Floral and citrus forward, easy on the bitterness; this will make a lovely chilled apéritif, and a good mixer for those that like a milder Martini.

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.
