Black Raspberry Mead – – One year old –
Color: Rich, dark opaque ruby. The nose is redolent of a burgundy, with a strong berry note underlain with honey, a touch of oak and maybe a hint of chocolate. The flavor is excellent! Rich dark berries and honey together, no off flavors, and a long, tangy finish that keeps bringing back the berries over and over. So far, this is my favorite of the Magpie Meads. This evokes memories of Ken Schramm's Heart of Darkness mead, hands down the most exotic and tempting mead I've had to date. I'll be finishing the bottle on this one, and not sharing with *anyone*.
Buy it, buy it, buy it!!!
