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.
