Saturday, December 8, 2012 - Goose at our place. (Seattle, WA): Clear dark ruby red. A little oak on the nose along with some aromatic, pretty red fruit. Medium bodied, soft and feminine in the mouth. Effortless to enjoy. This actually may have been too delicate for the fatty goose. Some acidic brightness was certainly present, but the tannins were like silk pillows. As stated, quite elegant, but also showing a load of fresh red fruit. This fruit is definitely the star of the show right now, although the soft texture and freshness is quite compelling. Long, mouthcoating finish. Delicious.
