Le Beaujolais Nouveau est arrivé

le beaujolais nouveau est arrivé!

Man, I haven't posted a wine tasting on this blog in forever. I suck!

My apologies to any remaining readers or curious scragglers. I've just been pumping my time and attention into other things. Like video games and dreams about world leaders.

This year's Beaujolais Nouveau — my first — surprised me with its acidic tendencies. I guess I was expected a fruity, jammy juice of a wine that had no complexity to it. Instead, I got a smoky and fairly flavorful red with a juicier nose than taste.

There is something almost like cheap candy or licorice in the taste of this wine. It's hard to put my finger on it.

It's a quaffable wine, for sure, but not something I'm terribly crazy about.

Still, I'll probably seek it out year after year to see how each crop compares to the last.
