Wine Profile

Tasting Notes He would arrive unannounced. You think your parents had met him while backpacking through a country that has a different name now. His accent was articulate and rustic. His face weathered and healthy. His thick wool jackets smelt of the old Orient: preserved cherries, Sandalwood, Ceylon tea, rose petals, cinnamon, Peaberry coffee bean and cognac. He was always gone too soon but would leave you a box of gold wrapped chocolates, each with a different flavor: nutmeg, caraway, plum and mint. Years later, when asked your parents looked confused, certainly no one like that had ever visited, besides, they had never travelled overseas.
