North Carolina Wine TV Review:
This semi-sweet wine from Biltmore does not list any grapes on its label. Based on the flavor profile, Kipp guesses the mystery grapes in the bottle. Let us know if you agree with him. The nose of this wine is in your face apricot, with a touch of granny smith apple peel and vanilla. The initial approach has a nice acidity with flavors of apple, pear, apricot, but the funky harshness at the finish ruins this wine for us. Some may like this wine, but we recommend that you choose another North Carolina wine for your holiday celebrations.

About Biltmore Estate (from the winery):
The most visited winery in the United States isn’t located in Napa Valley. It’s at Biltmore in the mountains of North Carolina, where approximately 1 million visitors stop by to sample award-winning estate wines each year. The first vineyards at Biltmore were established in 1971 in an area below Biltmore House. French-American hybrids were planted initially, with vinifera plantings following in a few years. Inspired after several years of experimenting, William A.V. Cecil, then president and owner of Biltmore, decided that a winery was the natural outcome of ongoing research and a logical extension of his grandfather’s intention that the estate be self-supporting.
