White pepper on pungent stems crushed into granite and scattered across cassis soaked concrete. Pink peppercorns and pumpernickel partner the fragrant pucker of red currants, rose petals, and sorrel soaked white sage. Rosemary infused wild thyme liquor, with butterscotch drippings on chocolate mint leaf. Coriander pitted prunes in deep dank earth, truffles smoked, the wine spiced and just a bit baked. Black and blue brambly jam preserved with yuzu bitters. On the palate the fruits are sun-scorched and rubbed in essential herbs- like an echinacea and elderflower tincture. On the palate there is a textural play of silk and sand. The finish is weightless and feathery- misting the palate awaiting any morsel to make its savory mate.
Like a person as a wine ages they get edgy but also soft and a bit worn. The flowers are wilting the fruits’ condition changing, all a bit weathered dried and certainly more savory and spiced. With love they open to share tales of wisdom, the wine we love for its juvenile jest now jestering us to remember our youth. No longer naive, the wine has gained strength and weight, heavier from all it has seen.
