Sheridan Vineyard Mystique, 2008

Nectar from the gods.

Does not require a point system or a list of superlatives or connoisseurs weighing in.  This is a deep, dark, black cherry whopper of a red, fulsome and lingering and delectable and luscious.  In fact, if there’s a drawback, maybe it’s simply too much of a good thing for some people.   Be warned: This has heft; it’s no cru Beaujolais.

Price: Gifted.  Sweet.  When friends treat you like this it’s either because they love / admire you or think you’re a wine snob.  I’ll take it either way.

Market Liquidity: Do not operate heavy machinery after imbibing.
