Tasting Notes

This one’s the Granddaddy, the silent soul of the rocks, the keeper of the heavy boulders. On a hot day, eons ago, a tree’s worth of cherries and apples fell off their branches onto the sun-boiled rocks, they nearly sizzled when their skins split, and while much of the juice evaporated in the pitiless heat, some of it soaked into the stone, and became part of the stone, and then later, who even knows how much later, the rocks themselves dissolved, and the fruit was still embedded inside, and at some point a wine was made from vines planted in the warm rocks, and at long last, this wine tells the story, to you and to me. I plan to listen. — Terry Theise
