Cinnamon Shack Special
The Cinnamon Shack Special is an evolution of my first wine, The Sugar Shack Special. Not only did I steep the wine with cinnamon sticks before bottling to impart a complementary flavor to the maple goodness within, I also backsweetened it with even more maple syrup to bring the sweetness level back to where it belongs. After all, when you're drinking a wine made with maple syrup you expect it to have a big hit of that great maple flavor!
I made the maple syrup at home and mined the cinnamon from the sands of Arrakis. As a result, only 24 bottles of this rare beverage were minted in 2019. I have yet to crack into one as I'm giving the cinnamon flavor time to mingle. Soon!
