Red Fox Cellars 2016 Teroldego
Obviously, I know that small group of people are experimenting with teroldego here in New York, but Red Fox Cellars is working with it – as well as grapes like nebbiolo and dolcetto too! – out in Colorado.
Very aromatic, the nose starts off with black currants and blueberries with just a little black cherry skin, some herby licorice and chicory coffee.
Pure and more cherry-driven on a medium-fuller, palate that has very little oak footprint, allowing that purity to shine through. There are some roasty and herbal notes at the edges, but not a lot of complexity at this stage. Fresh acidity provides most of the structure.
It turned a bit more savory on days two and three open on my table. I think more comlpexity could develop here with more time in bottle.
