wine 101: spiced peach

I made a peach wine last summer that turned out really horrible, probably because I was impatient and my peaches were not ripe. That was not a problem this time; my peaches were practically falling apart. I decided to try a spiced peach wine because I received some cinnamon bark pieces as a present and had yet to figure out what to do with them. Cloves seemed a reasonable addition after that. Hopefully it turns out well just in time for the really cold February evenings next year.
