Wait...what is this? I smell vanilla. I smell caramel. Is this a Port? (No - it's definitely not a Port!) This reminds me of my grandpa! These are just a few of the comments that our tasting room guests have made when tasting our exclusive Fool's Gold wine. Our Winemaker Pamela loves to experiment…and after a distillery tour in Tennessee...she came home to Washington and put her discoveries to good use by storing her go-to-wine - Syrah – in a Bourbon barrel for 4-5 months. While there's no bourbon in this wine - it sure will FOOL you...hence the name - Fool's Gold! This baby is potent - and unless you distain spirits - it will warm hearts and souls with a lovely nose and mouthfeel to compliment any pre or post-dinner event. It doesn’t taste like it smells…and it will leave your guests smiling and asking for more. Suggested pairings: dark sea salt caramel chocolate, poured over vanilla ice cream...or with a cigar!
