Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset, NY.

Twenty years on.

Crimson. Massive fruit anchored to a deep and meaty structure.  San Daniele prosciutto and empress plum and twisting below the sheer mass is a swollen exchange of stone, smoke and roses. On the surface, the world above is colorless and cold; underneath the snow the seeds are teeming.  Now – 2026+.
