The entire cork reads as:

In water one sees one’s own face; but in wine one beholds the heart of another.”

(French proverb)

Featured on a bottle of Old Vine Zinfandel (2013) made by Bogle Vineyards

I don’t know why the simple words on this cork just tugged at my heart strings. I imagine this is the kind of wine you would sip slowly (cautionary of the 14.5 % abv) holding it up to admire the dark ruby hues illuminate next to a crackling fire as you try to keep warm on a cold and rainy night. Is it the fire that warms you so or the wine that warms your soul?
