Redstone Meadery Black Raspberry Nectar
Redstone Meadery Black Raspberry Nectar (8.0% alcohol by volume) is carbonated and brewed with black raspberry juice is the first mead Redstone Meadery brought to market and its flagship mead. It smells of black raspberry and honey and pours a mildly effervescent, beautiful, brilliant purple. Mildly tart honey sweetened blackberry leads the flavors with tannins emerging mid-palate to lightly dry things out. The carbonation is moderate. The black raspberry flavors, the honey sweetness and flavors, the alcohol and the tartness and taanins all work together very well in this mead. It is very drinkable and repeatable. I rate it 78.
