In case anyone has doubts about my enthusiasm for vino, take a quick glance at this archival piece from 2010. It was originally titled “Excited About Wine!” lol
I can’t stop myself! I am just so excited to have a place to share my thoughts about wine. I hope folks reading this blog will 1) get something out of my posts and 2) share their thoughts on wines as well. That said – here’s another one.
Notes: The bouquet has plum, toasty vanilla and floral notes. Flavors open with a nice attack of bright red fruit flavors – bing cherry, red currant, damson plum with vanilla and what I can only describe as “zucchini bread” in the finish. Moderate tannins make this a drinkable wine now, but it certainly has enough backbone to do well with meals and to cellar some if you want. With oxidation the fruit flavors deepen and smooth a bit to darker reds – plum and dark cherry.
