Tasting Notes
It wasn’t your idea to come to the Blue Ridge Mountains this late in the season, but the Fraser firs and late ripening blackberries are a delight. The kitchen is steeped 100 prior tenant’s rituals, the scents of black tea, clove oil, creosote and bruised spearmint combine wondrously with your old fashioned made with proper maraschino and Angostura. The plan is to write, but tonight you indulge in a sunset, heavy cinnamon spiked hot chocolate and the cool, piped in water, while somewhere an organ plays.
