Two worn ranch-style brown leather chairs sit poised directly in front of the living room stone fireplace. Robert inherited this ranch-style log cabin that sits on a pine-treed 130-acre property in the Mongollon Rim from his grandfather. The flames are softly darting up and down and I can hear the crackle of the wood as it burns. A smoky scent of Ponderosa Pine wood brings me back to the very first fire I enjoyed in this, our vacation home in the mountains. As I take a seat and look outside through the French doors to the night sky, I notice the full moon shinning brightly over the powdery just fallen snow.
Robert brings me a crystal Bordeaux wine glass half-filled with the 2015 JCB Surrealist (Trois Saint) a Cabernet Sauvignon , containing two of my favorite grape varietals.
This wine is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon grape with 25% Petit Verdot. The color in the glass is a deep dark inky purple. I take a whiff. What gorgeous aromas! Scents of blackberries, a whiff of cedar and burnt toast mingle with subtle hints of Christmas baking spices I anxiously bring the glass to my lips and take a sip. Then, slowly swirl it around in my mouth. Oh my! The texture is plush velvet, supple and very smooth. It projects elegance. Opulence. Richness. Ripened berries, with velvety tannins slide down the back of my throat. The finish is dense and oh so delicious.
Robert passes me the bottle. Jean-Charles Boisset is the maker of this beautiful wine. The bottle is striking. It boasts a removable brooch resembling a cluster of grapes in gold and Rhodium plated brass from Swarovski (the crystal company in Austria) with sapphire, ruby, clear crystals and sparkling white glass pearls. A special bottle Robert received as members of the Collector’s Club from the Boisset Collection. Selected for me. From my love once the bottle is emptied. “Just a little gift for you my dear. I hope you like it.” Robert exclaims.
