Tasting Notes

Following a vigorous pour into my glass, I lower my nose while closing my eyes to greet visions of my once little girl taking a fistful of a potpourri of sweet violet, orange blossom, lavender and spice from her bedside table. Tauntingly, she slowly raises her arm above my head than gently releases her dried flowers upon my face. I’m in heaven, not wanting the moment to disappear. I open my eyes to see a polished deep garnet wine. The velvety palate bring forth plum and fig macerated with saffron and turmeric proceeding drying, chewy tannins interlaced with steak tartare, earth, a crumb of almond and Madagascar chocolate.
