Happy New Year

The New Year's Eve wine was a Lucien Albrecht Cremant D'Alsace Brut Rose, a French sparkling wine from Alsace. The wine was made from 100% Pinot Noir.  Beautiful color, with a good fruity and biscuity nose.  Small, active bubbles.  The taste?  Close your eyes and imagine a slice of fully ripe strawberry with a tiny drop of raspberry preserves on top.  Place that slice of strawberry on top of a warm biscuit straight from the oven and start munching.  That pretty much describes this wine.  Flat out delicious.  Great acid, nice fruity and long finish.  12% alcohol and $26.

Happy New Year to all of you and thanks for reading this.  Tomorrow starts our fourth year, but it seems like yesterday.
