Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Looking into the glass is like being drawn down into an endless inkwell. On the nose, powerful notes of blueberries and blue plums are followed by more nuanced, subtle aromas of earl grey, elderflower, sarsaparilla, and blood peach. The palate of the wine is both weighty and primal, combining notes of granite and slate with sanguine, savory elements of roasting kebab, au poivre, and sage. Like Grendel in his cave, the 2014 Black Orchid is a brooding, powerful beast just waiting to be unleashed. 98 cases produced.
