Tasting Notes
The cannonball was heavy. It took all your effort to load it into this iron muzzle. All there is to do now is take aim over the blackberry bushes, cinnamon trees, the fields of drying oolong and hopefully make impact on the wall of the fruit cellar. The crumpled marble mixes with the smashed jars of cherry preserves, clove spiced strawberries and cured meats. The bounty is now for you and your kin. Let the Saturnalia begin!
