Wow. Wow. WOW. It’s hard to use words like unctuous without sounding like an idiot. It’s hard to say brilliant and amazing and perfect without sounding like a dispossessed lover seeking salvation.
It’s also hard to write a coherent wine review when a tasting pour turns into downing half a bottle of this delicious monster. Let’s be real: I drink for a living and have been writing wine reviews for a decade now. I never drink more than a taste of the half dozen or so bottles I taste every day. This one, though, broke through my jaded exterior and sunk in its claws, deep.
A dense and chewy red with flavors that sound like a grown-up version of a candy store: Belgian chocolate, cherry cream soda, vanilla, allspice, and strawberry cake.
