Tasting Notes

Made in the style of Cognac, this brandy is distilled from a blend of vinifera and native grapes, all grown in the Finger Lakes. Patiently aged in refill American whiskey barrels, this brandy has a gentle balance of fruit and oak with a long finish. Look for vanilla and tangerine on the nose and a creamy palate that is reminiscent of rum raisin ice cream. 45% ABV
