Wine Profile

Tasting Notes They sometimes came upon these oases together: a patch of elderflowers in the desert sand; an empty factory filled with blackberry bushes; a steaming plum pie perched on a rocky mountaintop. Rustic but juicy, these places were soaked in aromas of clove, mint tea, and cherry. One of the times, he gave her a ruby ring in the shape of a winter flower. She pressed the ring to her lips in times of joy; it tasted of love.
