Wine of the Week - Behrens and Hitchcock 1996 "Ode to Picasso"


Excellent.  Just plain excellent.  Bold and full-bodied, yet balanced and rounded.

Red fruits aplenty on the nose, and a little bit of new car leather.

On the tongue is a nice, bitey acid at first.  Strawberry on the back of the palate.  A little bit of tobacco. Just a tasty, layered wine full of nuance; something new to discover with every sip.  Very long finish.

The very secretive label did not reveal the percentage of alcohol nor what blend was inside the bottle.  Some mysteries are best left unsolved.  Just drink and enjoy.
