Interested in the pomegranate...but I don't think I need 4 bottles of dessert wine. Sort of on the fence on this one...

Corrado, are you sure that your CT link (to the non-vintage) is correct? The Olallieberry was harvested in Oct '06, and CT says that you should drink the NV between '04 and '05.

Also, is there a vintage for the pomegranate or is it NV as well?

I think it was the codeslaves suggesting that wine.woot has 'jumped the shark' by offering dessert wine (the thread was first observed over @ SELLOUT.woot.com)

Funny, I have a recipe for homemade fruit wine that an old professor of mine gave to me. He got it from his grandfather and it works quite well in making sweet homemade country fruit wine out of any fermentable fruit. Anyway, when I was doing my grocery shopping about a month ago, I saw the pomegranates and wondered if they would make a good wine, seeing as I had never seen Pomegranate wine before... Now I get my answer! And I'm sure the Chaucer version is much better than anything I could cook up!

Not entirely, but there is no vintage I could see on the bottles or in the description. I know in some cases, CT users will put in the year they BOUGHT the wine. The drinking window on NV wines is a known shortcoming in CellarTracker; there really shouldn't be one.

Ever try to eat a pomegranate? Then you’ll know why we prefer to get our pom on in liquid form.



First time I read that the "m" in pom looked an awful lot like "rn" (which gave that sentence an entirely different meaning). Either time for an eye exam, time to go to a more 'grampa' resolution on the monitor, or time to lay off the Wellington.

(...okay, that's right-click, properties, Settings tab...)

Now every time I see Pom in the grocery store I'm going to be doomed to think of that. Thanks. :-P

As a complete n00b to dessert wines, could someone enlighten me? Should these be served chilled? Obviously refrigerated after opening (the website says), but what's ideal for a dessert wine, or does it matter based on fruit flavor and RS?

I had both the regular mead and the raspberry mead. I thought the raspberry was too fruity, too sweet, and somewhat cloying. It tasted like raspberry syrup, but it certainly was far from the worst dessert wine I've ever had, but I don't have a huge sweet tooth.

On the other hand, the regular mead was a truly excellent dessert wine. It was sweet without being overwhelming, it really let the honey speak for itself. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

As for these, never had them, but I honestly perked up when the page loaded. Account balance will likely be the determining factor in this purchase.

My roommate made a pomegranate wine a long time ago that turned out quite nice, but was definitely not sweet enough to be a dessert wine...and needed to be aged about a year before it stopped tasting like jet fuel.

The olallieberry or whatever it is sounds very tasty, and I'll probably order some in the morning.

It's my birthday today, and my dad gave me two 2001 Brunello and what looks like a decent bottle of port, so I'm ecstatic :D.

I find it troubling that after well over an hour, the mods have only found one quality post among this veritable plethora of wisdom...

Quality posts:
(12:19 AM) superspryte checks out the winery website.


Seriously guys, just the one? We must be reading different forums; that's all I have to say about that. Because from where I sit there have been several genius posts. Nonetheless, congrats to superspryte and thanks for keeping us from a null on the quality post quotient. Although since the roomba has like a dozen quality posts, I have to assume we are being graded on a curve...

Can this wine be purchased by those under 21 year of age? It doesn't have any restrictions in the description or anywhere on the main page.

Silly, can wine ever be purchased by those underage? Sorry, but no, since it's not legal for them to be in possession. ^_~

The Olallieberry Wine is very good....not as sweet as some may expect. Bargetto's has a pretty good reputation for their fruit (and grape) wines. The Pomegranate wine, I believe is new this year (or more accurately, they haven't made Pomegranate wine for a while)).
