Blackberry – Parker-Binns Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Blackberry Desert Wine from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills of North Carolina.

Produced 100% of locally sourced blackberries.

Fermented and aged in a style reminiscent to a port.

Beautiful purple color.

The nose is expressive and reminds one of fresh blackberry cobbler!

Tart and bold, like a perfectly ripe fresh picked wild blackberry.

12.4% ABV

$20 per bottle.

Blackberry – Lazy Bear Winery

Our wine tonight is the Award winning Blackberry Wine from Lazy Bear Winery in Easley, South Carolina.

A real fruit wine.

Fermented of 100% locally grown blackberries.

Light purple in color.

Nose of blackberry jam.

Semi-sweet on the tongue.

Flavor notes of fresh blackberry tart, slightly grainy with a lingering earthy tone.

12% ABV.

Bitchin Blackberry – Douglas Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Bitchin Blackberry from Douglas Vineyards in Kannapolis, North Carolina.

Grape wine with natural and artificial blackberry flavor.

Not sure of the base. I’d guess Chardonnay.

The nose is reminiscent of blackberry Kool-aid.

Sweet on the tongue.

Bursting with blackberry flavor on the tongue, just like a hot blackberry cobbler right out of the oven, fading with a slight tartness and subtle earthy tones.

9% ABV.

The owners suggested this one for us to take home as it is always one of their top sellers.

It did not disappoint. Very easy drinking.
