Giant screeching fig and black rubber in the sun, a deep brazil-cut of fruit decidedly beautiful, lacy-ripe but with enough edge on it to remind of the classics. Tuesday-tug, pulled up hard against expensive perfume, sweaty with reality. Closed-eye nectar on the tongue, cool, calm, and bright, but wax dripping sugar & spice on smooth skin, weaving slippery sighs into beads of earthiness.
How many BV Ruth’s have you had in your life? 5? 10? 40? 500? Don’t forget about these wines: they’re in every store everywhere in the world and are solid, solid, solid.
