Dirty secrets aged in oak barrels.
Dark matter wrapped around my tongue.
A full-bodied wine for a wandering mind.
There’s something happening
and, simultaneously, something else happening.
Like reading a book in a haunted castle,
like swimming alone at night in the middle of the ocean,
like peeling off the pantyhose of an unnamed whore,
waiting for the monster to come out from under the bed,
waiting for the shark to bite my leg,
waiting for a kiss from lips so red.

This wine scores 89/100.

A wine that tastes like boiled lust wrapped in satin.

Imagine a beautiful woman sitting cross-legged on dewy grass,
watching the night sky, letting the time pass.
Listen to her shy laughter
right after
she gives you the middle finger.

The wine fondles your tongue.

Something silky, ferric,
with hints of strawberry
like soft, bitten lips.

A kiss.
A false goodbye.
An image, a memory
that never took place.

An affordable red wine that pairs nicely with Lebanese meza. A decent blend with notes of strawberry, tobacco, and vanilla. I’d give it a 67/100, and I wouldn’t mind enjoying another bottle.
