If you haven't yet tasted Framboise, you don't know what a truly transcendent treat you're missing. Framboise is like drinking liquid raspberries. The taste experience is intense with fresh floral aromas and bright red fruit flavors. It's unlike anything you've ever put in your mouth.
This is made by fermenting raspberries to about .5% alcohol, then adding grape spirits to produce a hybrid between liqueur and wine. Intensely fragrant, with 16.5% alcohol and 16% residual sugar. The raspberry flavors are concentrated and pure, with amazing persistence. Use this in cocktails, or mix it with bubbly.
The N.V. Framboise is eerily similar to the great raspberry wine once made at Oak Knoll Winery in Willamette Valley (which I jokingly referred to as the Yquem of fruit wines). Very sweet but loaded with acidity, this is a totally pleasure-bent beverage best served over vanilla-flavored Gelato.
