Imbue Petal and Thorn Aperitif Wine

Imbue Petal and Thorn Aperitif Wine...$26.99 /750ml
Petal & Thorn is a hand crafted contradiction with elements of both beauty and beast. The feminine aromas as well as the delectably pleasing sweetness are corseted by a robust and beastly bitter finish.  In everything we do we strive to find balance; even when the beast is gnarly and the beauty is seductive as hell, we’ll find a way to give you both.

Tasting notes:
Striking feminine aromas of chamomile and orange-peel waft from the glass, with more orange, pine, and cinnamon on the palate. A broad silky texture and pleasing sweetness lend weight to the mouth feel, before ultimately giving way to the assertive Amaro-inspired, bitter finish.
Base wine:
Oregon Grown Pinot gris
Oregon Grown Pinot gris Brandy Distilled at Portland’s Clear Creek Distillery. Botanicals: Ten dried raw Botanicals (Organic whenever possible) and Oregon Grown Beets to give Petal & Thorn it’s enchanting color.
