This will be good. Day 1: crystalline ruby red, raspberry, strawberry, licorice and spice. Day 2: Add rose, menthol, black cherry and a touch of fresh shoveled earth to my day 1 description. Balanced with a long finish. Scored for this experience but super promising. I'll try my next bottle in 2020.
Acker Burgundy Dinner (The Writing Room (88th & 2nd Ave)): The first of the reds for the evening and I'm not 100% sure this didn't get a little bump in my book just for that. It's very young though and very leafy and stemy. Almost a hint of alcohol. Not even remotely ready for prime time (a bit of a theme with the reds which were mostly a bit young).
room for upside here over next 15-20 years, could taste some nice fruit through all the stemmy / oak flavors, good acid and tannins for structure, this could turn into something special, liked it better than the 2010 Latricieres from Faiveley that i had recently
Trialto Old World Classics Tasting: Very nice! Nose is loaded with cherry and dried cranberries, loads of spice, cola, earth, beef and anise. Very complex and attractive. Palate is dense, with a long cola tinged finish. Should integrate and improve.
