Many a Jack Tar has been given a run for their Salmagundi by none other than the Commodore of Her Majesty’s Mediterranean Navy, Sir Ron Yeay!! A military man of cunning and guile, he tolerates neither Pillaging or Plundering in his territory and is ready to give chase with exotic aromas of jasmine and cloves, manly flavors of blackberry and jam, and a full and long finish backed with a mean streak that’ll dry the leather off your Boots and Send you over the rails. . . Arrrr!!
“It’s a floor wax!” “It’s a dessert topping!” While the name of this wine might cause you to remember an old sketch from Saturday Night Live, we feel pretty safe in advising you not to use this wine to brighten your floors. On the other hand the bright fragrances of blackberries and tart candy flavors of peaches might leave you with a hankering for cobbler served over vanilla ice cream. Or your girlfriend. Or boyfriend. Or spouse. Or lover. Or all of them at the same time...
