Granted, we don’t live in the best berry-growing country, but when we found some blackberry vines suitable for our region, we were like giddy kids in a candy store. We’re just silly that way, prancing around like puppies about to get a treat when we find we can grow a small handful of berries.
We’re starting to enjoy our newly planted blackberry vines, and as they produce more fruit over the years, we look forward to many more homegrown versions of this fantastic crisp. The rich flavors of cabernet complement the blackberries perfectly, adding an extra layer of depth to the fruit. Of course anytime you’re baking with wine, make sure to pour an extra glass for yourself.
