The only thing these wines have in common is they’re both 15-oh. One funk and spirit; one fire and fuel. One garnet and orange; one ruby and blue. One brackish mint; one peaty blossom. One Welch’s and blackboard; one latex and newsprint. One tea leaves and cherry pie; one spit and baby food. One abrasive and open; one abrasive and tight. Choose carefully.
