Good news!  My head cold turned chest cold turned wicked sinus infection is beginning to subside!  I went out to dinner with a friend last night and the Riesling tasted like Riesling!  I am headed to a birthday party for my friend’s 5 year old today and she excitedly told me she has some wine for me to try.  I’m excited I’ll be able to actually taste them!  I shall fill you in if there is anything notable.

Dark – A visual term, a red wine of intense color.  As a flavor term, akin to “brooding”, a robust wine with depth and texture.

Random thought:  I like words with multiple uses.  Like “dark” being able to explain color and flavor.
