Every time I think I have hit it big, I find a new favorite. Call me fickle. Four years or so ago, I could not stand Pinot, the reason of course, was that I had not had a good one. Now I know that Pinot can be lush, fruity and fuller bodied. Tonight I have had the pleasure of Maysara Jamsheed.
When I twisted the cap off, yes a cap, get over yourself… I was immediately hit with the aromas of plum, coffee, violets and a little hint of tobacco.
Feeling anxious, I wanted to believe that the flavor would be as good as the aroma was leading me to believe. That first little droplet hit my tongue… WOW, I couldn’t resist taking a full gulp. Swishing it around my mouth so that every sensor could get a hit. Disappointing. NEVER. Oh the tongue was tingling and the cheeks were watering. I was in my pleasure place. Chocolate, coffee, tobacco, fruit, cinnamon and spice at the end. And the end never really came…the lingering flavor still bouncing around. Rich, full, luscious… DEVINE.
