Rich and deep. Savory yet suggesting sweetness. Tannins and flowers and earth. Dry and wonderful.
Dinner was marinated portobello mushrooms thrown on the grill until the edges crisped but the center remained moist. There was a saffron risotto with fresh peas on the side. Pretty plate but much better to eat it than look at it. Perfect with the wine.
