Right about now Soul Brother, the 2011 Peasant is all about the funk! Funk to me is the tragic Hero, the twist in the plot, the dark and brooding corner you are scared of. It’s what makes life interesting….from the pungent smell of French Cheese in all its stinky glory to the complex gaminess of Lamb. If this turns you on then the 2011 Peasant is the soundtrack to your life.
The nose is so dense it has a velvet texture. Boysenberry and blueberry laced with hints of lavender and rosemary, trailing into a savory crème brûlée. Drooling…. I want steak.
On the palate, rich red fruit married with deep blueberry. Silky tannins build around the fruit seemingly forever. Long in its story, finishes with grace and eloquence.
Mouth filling tannins continue with more strawberry that morphs into a mocha chocolate finish that lingers, and lingers, and lingers… still lingering and lingering, it seems to go on forever… This Wine is a Vampire!
