Zalto something

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 : Closson Chase 2011 KJ Watson Pinot Noir

29 Jan 2019

 Closson Chase 2011 Pinot

(June 22, 2018) ... Starting off with this Prince Edward County via Niagara Closson Chase 2011 KJ Watson Pinot Noir on this two bottles open night ... this has always been a pretty well made wine year after year at Closson and the '11 fit the bill upon release and now 7 years later it seems to be doing quite well - nothing startling here: sour and red cherry, with hints of that typical Pinot earthiness;  the palate comes off a little lean but it also has moments where there's a welcome richness ... an interesting dichotomy but I welcomed it.

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.
