Our wine tonight is Black Rose from Wellborn wine in the woods located in Travelers Rest, South Carolina.

Rosé of 100% South Carolina grown Lenoir.

Beautiful dark rosé color.

Shows nice legs.

Nose of freshly cut ripe strawberries and orange cream soda.

Sweet on the tongue though not overly.

Flavor notes very jammy, ripe elderberry, raspberry, strawberry, tangerine, pink grapefruit, and finishing like an orange creamsicle smoothie.

Black Spanish – Enoree River Vineyard

Our wine yesterday was Black Spanish, an estate red wine from Enoree River Vineyard in Newberry, South Carolina.

This American hybrid grape varietal is known by many names, Black Spanish, Spanish Black, Lenoir, Jacquez , El Paso, and others. The grape produces red juice, and a rich fruit forward wine. This estate wine from Enoree River is an excellent example of the bold wine which can be produced from Black Spanish grape. Nose is of black cherry, perhaps a bit musky. On the tongue it’s very fruit forward, with explosive notes of fruit jam, blackberry, elderberry, and cherry. Lingers sweet on the tongue, but not overpowering.

Winery Escapade scoring on the American Wine Society twenty point scale.

Appearance: 3 Aroma: 4.5 Taste: 5 Aftertaste: 3 Impression: 2
