Swan Song

Initial fatigue pauses a beat before a brief nod to perfectly aged Bordeaux explodes into creme de menth, spiced carmelized onions and wet Mexican leather. Steely dust provides an even keel for the undulating bouquet and explains in no uncertain terms this one will make girls half her age look silly with pure class, stuffing and experience. Steamy, sultry fruit, against a backdrop of olive skin, sweat, and red satin and backed by a peppery burn, throws caution to the wind, churning out warm chocolate and blistering tannins while dancing a note you can’t take your eyes off of.
