Yep, that’s right, Liquid Magic…

2007 Ryme Cellars Aglianico

Luna Matta Vineyard, Paso Robles

Dark and deep aromatic profile of black root, cherry pit, smoked lemon pith, warm stone and mineral, fernet-like dry, bitter, floral and herbal notes. Espresso and black tea, sweet rubber and dust. Quite understated.

On the palate this wine is liquid velvet despite enormous structure and a warm texture. Oh so drying, and I love it, such noble tannins. Bitter walnut skin, sappy and thick black flavors, espresso infused cranberry, pepper crusted cherry, dusty rocks, grapefruit pith and violet stems.

And with that, it’s gone.

Any curious wine-drinker wishing to explore Old-World sensibilities in the New World should jump on the Ryme wagon. The Ribolla Gialla is outrageously beautiful as well…

This is REAL wine. Go get you some.
