I opened a bottle of Portuguese red wine a little while ago to allow it to breathe before tonight's supper. Reading the blurb on the back, I learned that it was a "violaceous rubi [sic] wine". I guessed that rubi meant ruby – not a major intellectual feat – but had not previously encountered violaceous. It means, fairly predictably, violet coloured and the label is so right. I have just poured a glass; it's the most beautiful colour, tastes delicious and I have learned a new word. Serendipity on a Saturday evening.
