When I think about beverages that say 'autumn' to me, a whole bunch of things that don't quite fit into the standard wine box start coming to mind: cider, sherry, mistelle, Madeira, amari . . . beverages whose character perfectly matches fallen leaves, the darkening approach of the winter solstice, decorative gourds, etc. But, for a variety of reasons, they don't have the cultural weight of 'real wine.'Whether it's non-grape raw material that's been fermented as though it were natural wine, or fermented grape juice to which other things (oxidation, fortification, flor, aromatization) have happened . . . we'll taste three drinks made almost like table wine that rarely get their due in classes like these, that are delicious, and that are perfect for late November.
