2015 La Beijo
15 glass / 42 bottle / 36 club
Everybody including kids, grandparents, and the wait staff participated. Ah, the siren song of Brazil. Kissing is a big thing in Brazil and the locals freely offer três beijos (”three kisses”) when they greet you or say goodbye - even if they just met you.
An older woman must have liked my dancing because she gave me four. So sweet. The “Beijo” is a homage to this experience, the samba, and the bossa nova that I love. It’s a blend of estate grown grapes with a beautiful nose and lots of personality. Saude!
Stunning cherry and violet notes on the nose give way to a voluptuous, polished finish.
