Popped and poured. This gets a Whoa right out of the bat: A fanciful mélange of mocha, black raspberry, mint, and eucalyptus. And probably loads of other stuff that I am not picking up, but it smells so damned good, I need to swallow some ASAP. Whoa, rich, but stopping well short of being syrupy. I am not sure if this is a wine for a meal, but it is gang-busters with an episode of Game of Thrones. Whoa. Outstanding. thedrunkencyclist.com
