Kiss Me Like a Smoker

My tongue is black from the plumy dark kiss I just received from Gifford Hirlinger, 2008 Cab Blend.  Ripe with fresh fruitiness, this juice is a taste of cherry poppin’ tartlet.  Its mouthwatering ashiness, gives a slight feeling of just-kissed by a smoker.  Oh, you say it like it’s a bad thing!  And it is, but only for a moment.  Then, the kiss turns inside out — taken over by throaty tannins and warm delight. This wine throws down and satiates.
