This non vintage wine from Moldova, of all countries, (it’s next to Romania) was found in one of the package stores in Morristown, TN. When I saw the bottle and where it was from, my heart did a little flutter over a fond memory of a lover, a lake and magic…but you’re interested in the juice.
From the Nisporeni region of Moldova has berry purple and deep red hues. Port jamminess with hints of honey tickles the nose. This wine drinks very much like a medium bodied port with a mild finish and notes of honey, creamy spice and finishes up with slight pepper.
I think I paid about $24 or so for it and would have a few bottles on hand just to break out for difference. It made for a very nice dessert wine, honestly. Over time it opened up, but still drank very much like a port.
