Morris Old Premium Rare Liqueur Muscat 500mL

Morris is my house rare, because I adore it and because it’s $57 at Dan Murphy’s, making two 500mL bottles the same price as a single 375mL of most other rares. It’s a travesty that they can make a wine of more than twenty years average age and sell it at this price, but the most bewildering thing is that most wine lovers don’t even know about it. It’s black in hue and packed with profound complexity of age in notes of black olives and salty liquorice, held in impeccable balance by the freshness of marmalade and fig paste and the rich honeyed sweetness of plum pudding. Seamless and brilliant.
