Taste it Again / Lost & Found

On occasion, I’ll take a wine I like and put it away in a “special box” for a few years to see how it will age … below you will read happened to those wines. On the other hand, there are wines that get “lost” in my wine cellar with nary a review ever written - some have turned into golden Treasures, others supreme Trash and then there are those that fall somewhere in-between (Tolerable). We’ll look at those here too. (New wines are being added all the time so keep coming back):

Taste it Again : Flat Rock 2010 Pinot Noir

29 Jan 2019

Flat Rock 2010 Pinot Noir

 

(May 16, 2018) ... Now this was definitely a surprise wine, and I was not sure what to expect from, but it really delivered and I have to say it has something to do with the screwcap that sealed the bottle. It was fresh and lively with cranberry and  sour cherry notes, plus hints of white pepper, spiced-cranberry while an earthy finish completes the full Pinot Noir experience ... nice job in the making and I must say it doesn't taste anywhere near an 8 year old Pinot Noir.

Taste it Again : Colaneri 2010 Insieme

05 Jan 2019

Colaneri Insieme

 

(December 18, 2017) ... Colaneri is one of those appassimento wineries that dot Ontario, they just don't do one, they seem to be all dried-fruit ... I personally wish they'd leave some grapes and vintages alone but it seems this manipulation is here to stay. This is their Insieme Red Blend, and at 7 years there are some really pleasant spiced plum and black cherry notes along with the merest hint of volatile acidity and alcohol heat, my advice is to drink up before these characteristics overtake the wine completely (you have another year or maybe two) ... On the palate the alcohol shows through along with some interesting spice mixtures: spiced rum cake and spiced plum pudding. Good news is that the acidity has remained high to keep the wine on the more cleansing side and there's even some vanilla coffee bean on the finish.
