Whazzup? The Great What's It.
My good friend Jill of Domaine 547 is now a brand owner. That's right, you heard it here second (or more likely 6th).
The Great What's It 2005 is 100% Syrah all estate grown from Stolpman Vineyards. It's a deep and luscious wine - dark, masculine and brooding like Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights. One might say the elegant but feisty finish is comparable to Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice. And one might also say that it's limited availability, only 25 cases, is much like Jude the Obscure.
I don't often make references to characters in classic literature when talking about wine, or when talking about anything really, but the Great What's It really brings out the scholar in me. It will make you smarter or my name isn't Orville Redenbocker.
