Cooper’s Hawk Winter Red Spiced Wine

28 Apr

Opened my birthday bottle of Cooper’s Hawk Winter Red Spiced Wine for Passover last Friday. I’ve never had a bottle of wine before that gave you the IMG_9160option to warm it on the stove, but after you taste it everything makes sense. It’s basically the pumpkin spice latte of wine. At 13.5% ABV it’s a grape wine with mulling spices added like spiced apple, cherry, mandarin orange and baking spices. It smelled and tasted like cloves, pepper and fall. It was much sweeter than I was expecting. It’s not bold like a Merlot, but not as sweet as Manischewitz. It paired much better with the charoset than it did with the lamb. I could definitely see drinking this a little warm bundled up with some pie in the fall, which is basically winter here. Online it looks like a bottle goes for about $14 and I would recommend picking one up when it’s cooler outside.
