I’ve spent many nervous hours in green rooms awaiting curtain calls, and I can tell you there’s nothing like that feeling. True to its name this wine is nervy, vibrant, and dreamy; like a dance sequence from The Red Shoes. The nose is bursting with focused energy; like fresh cut citrus rind. "The Green Room" gets me as amped as opening night with a packed house: Roses, pointe shoes, Violets, curtains, thyme, places in 5, cracked pepper, applause. This nectar tastes like an aggressive amount of raspberry rouge and a standing ovation.
