Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
In the darkness you inhale juniper and wet stone as you rush along the path. Trying to reassure yourself that it’s gone, you glance over your shoulder. The cabin comes into view and you are practically running now. A man opens the door as you duck inside taking refuge from the frigid night. A fire crackles and you notice steam rising from a pot of simmering mole. The old abode is worn and comforting. Notes of roasted plums, jerky, cherry pie and the cedar tobacco boxes fill the air. Hearing a crack something darts from view through the window. Has it been watching you?
