Wine Profile

Tasting Notes As you pass through the marketplace you are astounded by the almost rhythmical dance of people and color. You breath in cinnamon, chai spice, elderberry, nori and soy sauce. A vendor is selling black cherry ice cream and you are taken back to your childhood standing outside of the local Thrifty’s with a single scoop. Your first purchase is a jar of Chinese five spice plum chutney. There’s a flash of flame and when you pass the next stall a man invites you to sample his warm cherries jubilee. Nearing the exit you select a corked vial of mixed peppercorns before you depart.
