I just bottled a 1 gallon batch of spiced apple that I dont care for. I put several cloves in a tea bag and left it in the must for 3 days. I also added a cinnamin stick for a couple weeks. Now all I can taste is clove with a hint of apple!! So my question is do I:
1)Take the obvious approach and let it age 6 months and try a bottle ect.
2)Blend it with another wine (which one?)
3)Give it away at Christmas
I will go with the majority.

Have you thought about sweetening it up? Turn it into an aperitif to accompany a cheeseboard and dried fruit at the end of a meal?

Dont bottle let it bulk age. Time will smooth the cloves. Like what Wade said maybe blend it or try a f-pac.
