Ed Kurtzman Comes To Dinner (2015) (Luiciana's In Dana Point): Ah ha, another 11 vintage wine. This was my WOTN of the 13 we had over the meal. It has the balance, expansive palate, freshness and acidity that makes the 11 vintage so dynamite for me. What Ed got from this vintage was the classis Rosella's citrus, strawberry (like the 05 we had next to it) and a delicious zingy tone. The finish is spicy and long. Dig it.
