(wine, what I'm tasting and what I'm thinking about)

So this turned up after dinner a couple of nights ago - I was a trifle concerned as the word Absinthe was rather prominently displayed upon the label (I have previous with the green stuff).
However it was far from undrinkable and dangerous. Cherries and bitter herbal notes all blended quite happily, being a trifle picky it was a bit on the sweet side, much improved by an addition of an extra slug of absinthe or pastis (Henri Bourdain in this instance)..
