Nightwish Imaginaerium, Ribera del Duero, Tempranillo 2010
The Imaginaerum-project by Nightwish with the album, the movie and of course the wine creates a whole concept pampering all of the senses. It opens a door to a paralel universe...
Every wine has an occupation. This one is a Hunter.
Now let the Hunt begin...it won't be an easy catch.
It's a bit harsh after opening, so don't start to drink immediately, leave it to breath for a while. You have to wait like a Hunter is waiting for his Victim. Wait calmly, show some respect, it's worth it... It has a beautiful ruby red colour, like freshly drawn blood. Swirl it around your glass and have a sniff. You'll find wood from the oak-barrel where the wine spent months for ageing, sweet cherry and plum, spices of the magical world and something else, something extraordinary. This wine has a story.
Use Your Imagination!
Imagine you are running in the woods, chasing an animal in the moonlight and finally you catch it. The warm blood reflects on the blade of your knife. The trees are rustling as the wind blows. The smell of the blood gets into your nose. Tear a piece of meat from the body and roast it on the fire. Medium-rare, please... Now have a sip of the Imaginaerium. You deserve it...Time stops for a moment, there is pure love, joy and eternity. It's so fantastic how it tingles your taste buds. You can feel the wine as it spreads all over your veins? It's the majestic unite of nature.
Life is a deadly game of sacrifices. You can be the Prey or you can be the Hunter. Just think of the grapes which have been sacrificed to create such an amazing wine for you. Celebrate a big feast with this wine which gives you a special treat that you will never forget.
