A Smile of Fortune is a dark fruit melomel containing Black Currants, Lutowka Cherries, Heritage Red Raspberries and Oregon Boysenberries. Intensely bold fruits balance their tart, tannic, and acidic flavors with the sweetness of high quality, responsibly sourced honey. Fortune truly smiled upon this mixed fruit melomel, and we are grateful for the result. Pairs beautifully with fresh young cheeses, pork, or chocolate.

Purple blood red. Smells insane. The nose is remarkable. HUGE cherry aroma with a light raspberry and lovely red wine. Wow. Oily coats the tongue it’s sweet, dry and tannic all in one with a delicious wine finish. This is amazing. Honey is present but make. Wow.
