"The N.V. Framboise is eerily similar to the great raspberry wine once made at Oak Knoll Winery in Willamette Valley (which I jokingly referred to as the Yquem of fruit wines). Very sweet but loaded with acidity, this is a totally pleasure-bent beverage best served over vanilla-flavored Gelato."
"If you haven't yet tasted Framboise, you don't know what a truly transcendent treat you're missing. Framboise is like drinking liquid raspberries. The taste experience is intense with fresh floral aromas and bright red fruit flavors. It's unlike anything you've ever put in your mouth.
The raspberries for our Framboise are from bucolic Mount Vernon, Washington. With majestic Mount Baker in the distance, our raspberries are sourced for Pacific Rim from Mike and Jean's Berry Farm. The clone, or variety, of the raspberry is grown exclusively for Pacific Rim Framboise Called the Morrison variety, the raspberry is exceptional due to its low bitterness and abundant flavors.
Framboise is incomparable on its own or as a complement to any dessert. The bright raspberry flavors dance on your palate and serve as either a wondrous liquid dessert or complement to your favorite treat. We strongly recommend that you explore with Framboise savor on its own, pour liberally over your favorite dessert (chocolate cake and cheesecake respond quite favorably) or mix into your preferred beverage (Framboise enhances all manner of cocktails). You can even use Framboise as a filling ingredient in your most excessive dessert recipes." ~ WInery notes
