Good Morning Gentle Readers,
WTH do you think is going to pop out of this bottle when you pull the cork?
And good luck shoving the cork back in when it does. It'd be like that old joke about the 4H pig.
I dunno doc, all I can remember is that poor little monkey trying to put the cork back in.
Not sure the Sebastiani guys thought this through (or maybe they did?). The culture doesn't really identify pennywise with value and thrift anymore. Damn you Stephen King! You ruined it for all of us. OTOH, money talks and you-know-what walks. And those boys is laughing all the way to the bank.
The 2012 vintage shows textbook Petite Sirah color with an inky purple hue. The aromatics show notes of intense blueberry, dark cherry reduction, violets, and vanilla bean. Once again, the flavors start sweet and then get darker on the finish. This blend starts with blueberry pie, blackberry, sweet purple basil, and dark caramel. The wine finishes with dark molasses, toasted cedar plank, sweetened dried cherries, and mocha coffee.
It's not a bad Tuesday night pizza wine and it's generally under ten bucks American.
