Quite a Figure

Dank dirty catacombs of weeds piled high, chalky obfuscation behind a Cask of Amontillado brick wall. Brilliant dark staining ruby nearly impenetrable with fluorescent edges and obvious sediment. Sweet chewable vitamin C in the mouth–the kind you used to look forward to as a kid. Heroin addict supermodel thin, excelling exclusively at strut and sharp edges on arms and legs going on forever, the thick black cherry has no curves and not a drop of wiggle. Brilliant sexy with a Concorde-class middle note expanding and excentuating the attempt to show some fruit American would consider ripe. This thing needs to settle down for a couple years, but oh man is it fun to drink now. Hey, I happen to like skinny chicks.
