Drinking this wine is like walking into a room full of intellectuals discussing something way above your station. You know you’re surrounded by greatness but you have no way of verbalizing what that greatness is.
Just like the Neuralyzer in Men in Black (yes I did have to google that), this wine is light, bright and enjoyable, but not particularly memorable. The kind of charming well spoken wine you take home to meet your parents, while secretly wishing you were with the loose Shiraz.
I tasted this at the winery and thought it would taste good in a year or so. I’ll never know if I was right because I just it drank it several weeks later. Still feel the same way. Decent but something missing.

I need a proper wine cellar, 3. This wine must be incredible when properly looked after because it still […]
Plenty of body, but subtle. More Bruce Lee than Arnie. Went perfectly with a creamy, but peppery, goulash.
