This is, I believe, an everyday wine produced and bottled by Konstantin D. Frank & Sons, Vinifera Wine Cellars, Hammondsport, NY. I paid $13.95 at Dean & Deluca in Charlotte, NC. 11.5% alcohol
Ripe apple nose (maybe even overripe apple but not unpleasantly so). Partly oxidized?
Flavors of rich apple flesh with perhaps a little peach. Enough acid to balance as a food wine. I had with a Lean Cuisine dinner of Swedish meatballs and pasta in a savory sauce after getting home from work and errands around 7:00 PM and not wanting to cook. Nice match. In a blue glass bottle with an artificial cork.

Is the move finished?

No. I have about a month overlap with the apartment and the condo and won't be staying overnight at the condo until about August 25 or 26. Washer and dryer are to be delivered this Thursday. I'm setting up the kitchen and pantry so I can put a meal together without rummaging through boxes after the move.
