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.
