Yuri:
You're playing against type here.

While I don't expect a flak filled sky, where is the aircraft in the Cielo Dulce?

The label picture was taken with some water and food coloring standing in for the wine. Here's the real deal:



Don't worry, it's done fermenting, and I've purged the headspace with inert gas to avoid oxidation (but I fear it may have been too late!).

Actually, I thought it was quite in keeping with my usual theme, with the slight twist that it seems a bit more subtle and sophisticated rather than an "in your face," aggressive name. That was the intent, anyway.

Here's the finished product (my crappy flash photography made the labels look a little washed out):

Yuri, that looks great! I love the silver tops, they really go with the label and the blue bottle. Now, when's the product eval?

I filled and corked a partial bottle, so I didn't want to age it too long. Just opened it. The flavor is much like a white dessert wine (Gewürztraminer, perhaps). The agave flavor is REALLY subdued. It's got a slight sulfur funk that I'm hoping will mellow with age. I mixed an agave wine margarita (just lime juice and agave wine), and the agave flavor seems much more pronounced against the lime. Best margarita ever!

Hei yuri...It's not "cielo dulce" you've made a mistake! It's "cielo dolce"

Sam, you'd be correct if the label were in Italian. However, it's Spanish - a bit of a play on the fact that I'm living in a border town, making agave drinks.
