They realised how much she had aged when Severo del Valle brought her the first bottles of wine from the grapes that had matured late and that, they learned, produced a smooth voluptuous wine with very little tannin called a carmenere, as good as the best in France, which they baptised Viña Paulina. Finally they had in hand a unique wine that would bring them wealth and fame. My grandmother tasted it delicately. “It’s a shame I can’t enjoy it - let the others drink it.”
from Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende (2000). Very Highly Recommended.
