Today’s review is a result of quick decision making. I was in the store and had only a couple of minutes to look around and make a buy. The label For Liberty School looked interesting to me so I decided to buy a bottle and try it.
I got some subtle aromas of blackberry and cherry when I was doing my smelling test. I could pick out a little oak and spice but nothing too overwhelming. I had to aerate it because I found some debris in the initial tasting pour, but it was nothing that my strainer couldn’t handle. The body was medium with a dark tint that seemed to posses a good amount of red color.
I could definitely pick out the cherry. The blackberry (and vanilla?) was a little hard to get at times, because the wine’s oak flavor came on a bit strong. The spices were more subtle than most wines and there was a clean finish.
