How did they talk you into this? You pull open the heavy deep ruby colored drapes and poke your head into a dim room which smells of blackberry and blueberry hookah smoke, exotic pepper, dried flowers and fennel smoked meats. She says she’s been waiting for you. Glancing back at your friends you roll your eyes as you step inside and release the velvety curtain behind you. She sips cassis from a rustic goblet and motions for you to sit. You don’t know how long it’s been but you exit into the night stunned and a bit confused. She couldn’t have known. But she did.
Decant 3 hours, serve slightly about cellar temperature (55-60F). Aging potential 6-10 years.
