Eaglemount Wine & Cider NV Quince Mead, Puget Sound, $22

By on April 27, 2018

Eaglemount Wine & Cider in Port Townsend, Wash., used quince and honey from the San Juan Islands to make its quince mead, which clearly shows what it’s made from in its aromas and sweet flavors. If you’re unfamiliar with quince, conjure up the best elements of poached pear and Fuji apples and you’ll have the idea. This won the award for best nongrape wine at the sixth annual Cascadia International Wine Competition.
