Enjoying wine in MN
@Sharon B said it’s national drink wine day so today’s obligatory bottle is a brand new one recommended by my buddy @ LWS.
It’s good. A bit lighter than I would have thought. Nose is cherries, floral, and herbal.
A little bit less than medium body. Strawberries, red currant, and green. I’m thinking I showed up to the party 5 years too early. Will come back later! — a day ago
You know those nights when you need one more bottle you weren’t planning on and have no time to decant? This wine was ready pop and pour. Everyone loved it. In some cases, more than a couple more expensive bottles. Easy drinking, well balanced, not super full bodied, but perfect for the moment. Great Xmas present @Dave Z
Finishing half the bottle on Day 2 and this got even better. Changing to a 92 — 3 days ago
Needed 2 hours to open. Spine of Cabernet, suave of Merlot. Really well balanced. Nose is pretty, lots going on, hard to pin down, partly because I just want to enjoy it instead of concentrate on it. BlackBerry, blueberry, currant, dust , graphite, allspice. Tannins end smoothly, but with a healthy pucker. There’s iodine at the end, but not offputting. Awesome now. Probably should wait a while to open. Have one more bottle, hope I can. — 18 days ago
