VJB Cellars 2015 Montepulciano

Rooty Tooty DRY And Fruity!!vjb

This is a wine full of contradictions,  it’s an oxymoron (pronounced Awk Sim Or On) in a world full of similes.    It’s Military Intelligence and  Deafening Silence in liquid form.

On the nose it’s black cherry and true fiction.  It hits the tongue with a jammy aggressiveness and scalding coolness of it’s soberingly high alcohol content.

Mid Palate you start to perceive some tobacco and cocoa,  the lascivious grace  of lively acid makes this a food friendly wine.  The tannins finish smooth and round giving fullness to your empty mouth.

Decant this baby, it’s throwing sediments, it’s very old for such a young wine.  Likely will continue to improve in the bottle until it reaches a festive tranquility in about 3 years.vjb sediment

I can say with overbearing modesty, this wine’s worth the 50 bucks i paid for it.
