That was many years ago - I think four or five years, now - and my tastes have continued to evolve, but I am always excited to return to an old friend. Acentor brought back that sense of enjoyment that Zeta introduced me to all those years ago.
The wine was a bright garnet color with a light body, perfect for the summer days we've been having. It was fragrant and herbaceous, but the young fruits shone through as well.
On the taste I was struck by the refreshing acidity, plus a cooling, almost minty note. The herbal flavors carried through, along with plummy fruit flavors, which lingered on through the crisp finish.
I really enjoyed this wine, and it retails for $14 a bottle, making it a decent value as well.
Books: Reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. Nearly finished with it now; that will be a fun review to write!
Bottles: The above, plus I have more from the club - yea!
Writing: Taking a bit of a break while I focus on other pursuits for a little while.
Guitar: Looking at the scale modes right now, trying to get them memorized better, especially switching to the 5 string root.
