Just sitting around in my Mexican leather patio chairs munching on dark chocolate peppermint patties and watching the road crew across the street.
So ridiculously lush and delectable while still pushing all those Cab buttons. Shrill sage and European butter, and a mouthfeel clean and bright as a quinceañera. All wrapped around a throbbing ripeness and elegant dusty red velvet playing pecan-pie peek-a-boo with red-meat dry-rubs. An almost artificially-generated set of tertiary strokes and titillates while gold-digging young brashness dances until 3AM.
Martini if you can get it, of course. But Martini ALEXANDER VALLEY if you at all can. This thing is drinking ridiculously stupidly perfect right now. I realize it’s only 7 years old but hey I don’t judge.
