Our wine tonight is First Degree from Wide River Winery in Clinton, Iowa. This is our first craft wine from Iowa. We were excited to open and give a taste.
Beautiful rosè in color.
A sweet raspberry wine. Very light and subtle nose. A burst of tartness on the tongue, lingering to a bold raspberry liqueur finish.
Would pair extremely well with cheesecake.
Winery Escapade scoring on the American Wine Society twenty point scale.

I searched but could not locate ABV listed on the label. Shows moderate legs.
Thanks to our friends Mike and Danette Myers for gifting us this bottle. Overall, it’s a nice drinking sweet wine.
