I bottled this last Nov. and tried it last night. I was completely disappointed. First the smell, which is not really known to me was kinda off putting...not terrible but very strange. It was more of a uggg instead of a ummm if you get my drift.
Initial taste was sharp bite...so I did the cork and shake CO2 test and I have plenty of gas. Let it sit for an hour and tasted it again. Mehhh...not much there taste wish...it is dry...it is effective, fairly warm going down. Just a very forgetable, thin, dry wine.
First time making this wine and it was a lot of work...sticky business too. I did boil the fruit according the recipe I had....have since seen other recipes that say don't do that. The pears were gathered in a very dry year...I have seen much better looking pears, maybe that had something to do with it too. I'm up in the air about trying this one again.
Have about 9 bottles left...no problem letting them sit longer now!
