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.
