Field notes: the fruit of the vine

It came as news to me that one could distill vodka from grapes. But that's exactly what the folks at St. Julian winery have done. Now normally when you tell me you distilled a spirit from wine you're telling me you made brandy. But this raw, unaged brandy is being sold as "vodka". Don't ask me how it tastes, I didn't have time to stop in. I just spotted the billboard.

I'm curious as to the brandy though. Aged 2 years in Hungarian oak and 2 years in French oak. I might have some field research ahead of me.
