Reading the description of this wine when it came in, I was instantly curious. Lead pencil, coconut, mint, dark chocolate, and plum preserves? How in the world is that possible??? I was dubious, to be honest. I opened it and gave it some air, and my first inhale revealed the plum and the faintest hint of my grade school lead pencils! On the palate, the dark chocolate, smoke and spice came tumbling forth. It was creamy, smooth, but with enough tannins to stand up to the Spanish Picadillo that my roommate was in the process of making. Neither the Picadillo nor the Cuvee Constance lasted long! This is hands down my new house wine~ hooray!
