Two New Candidates for The 2017 Edward Bulwer-Lytton Award for Wine Descriptions

 

1) An explosive yet reticent, manly wine. Does it speak to you? See full note below.

  2) A berry, berry wine with crushed (SAD)  red flowers. Read on.

Please vote for you favorite dark and stormy wine tasting note.

#1. 93+ Points. Vinous/Antonio Galloni

“Lavender, black cherries, cloves, menthol, orange peel and dark spices grace the explosive, powerful finish. Dark and enticing, but also quite reticent, the 2013 has a lot to say, but not just yet. The deep, inky finish gives the 2013 much of its virile personality.”

#2. Anonymous online review

“This Reserve is suave and rich on the nose with lots of fresh berries, plums, red flowers and raspberries. A nice sip of mixed berries including blackberries and dark raspberries, with root beer, forest floor, cinnamon spice, vanilla oak, and crushed red flowers. A long, and vibrant finish.”

 

These two finalists join the pithy or pith-poor description posted a few days ago.
