Cabernet Sauvignon, 2016

Produced by Croma Vera Wines

Red. But, more red than red. Ruby red. Garnet red. Red like you're staring into the eye of a gem. Lean in, gems shouldn't smell this decadent. Cola. Vanilla. Mocha. Is that, leather? Lean in, gems shouldn't taste this rich. Round. Robust. Full. As if you're biting into a red fruit whose genius you can't place a finger on. Don't try. Keep sipping. Sipping. Sipping. Gone. No more red. Save for the red of your lips tattooed to the rim of your lonely wine glass. Lonely. Lonely. Pour more red.
