I picked up this gem on a recommendation from my friend, Pam. She has impeccable taste, and this is no exception. From the fetching label to the convenient screw-top to the $10 price tag, Take 5* is a beauty. And delicious, too.
In the glass, it’s a pale lemony-yellow with a slight greenish tint, and the fragrance just about knocked me out. Powerfully fruity, the aroma of apricots and ripe strawberries led to a delightful honeysuckle scent – and memories of roaming the woods where I grew up, pulling honeysuckle juice strait from the flower.
The flavor of strawberries was almost overwhelming on the tongue, with hints of cantaloupe, orange, and apricot. This wine was just bursting with fruit! Have I mentioned that already?
As you can probably tell, I love this wine and plan to enjoy it nicely chilled throughout this Texas summer. In fact, it would be excellent served on the patio with a meal of spinach salad and grilled quail. So, go ahead and buy a bottle for yourself and to share!
*Take 5 refers to the number of grape varieties used to produce this white blend. I have no idea which varieties, and it was too good to worry about. Also, if you enjoyed Ironstone Obsession Symphony, you’ll love this wine, too!
